Re: School District Announces New TFHS Head Basketball Coach
The Twin Falls School District #411 is pleased to announce James C Glenn Jr. will be the Head Basketball Coach at Twin Falls High School for the 2020-21 school year. This decision was approved by the School Board on June 17.
Glenn has most recently served as the assistant varsity coach at Twin Falls High School for the last five years under Coach Matt Harr. He also was also the assistant Varsity Head Coach at Canyon Ridge High School and Robert Stuart Middle School. Glenn has a lengthy history of coaching basketball. Prior to joining the Twin Falls School District, Glenn coached basketball for more than 20 years at Reagan High School and the Delaney Rudd Basketball Academy in North Carolina. Glenn has also had the opportunity to develop and coach NCAA Division I basketball players and professionals overseas and the United States.
“I would like to thank first and foremost, Twin Falls High School for selecting me for the position as Head Coach,” Glenn said. “It is an honor and a privilege to represent such a well-built program that has a great tradition of winning.”
“A coach is someone who can give corrections without causing resentment.”
Glenn also played Division II basketball at Rutledge College in Columbia South Carolina. After his time at Rutledge, James joined the Navy where he served as a Hospital Corpsman. Since relocating to Twin Falls, James has worked as a Sumtotal Administrator at St. Luke’s Magic Valley and recently joined the team at Berkshire Hathaway Idaho Homes and Properties as a Realtor.
“I know James will bring enthusiasm, energy, and high expectations to this position. He has a winning attitude and passion for the game that he will share with the players as our new head coach,” said Nancy Jones, Activities Director at Twin Falls High School. “I have no doubt he will continue the winning tradition of this program.”
