Greg Whitmer was introduced as the head coach for the Barberton High School girls basketball team.
His hiring was approved by school board members on Wednesday night.
Whitmer began his coaching career in 1978 at Mogadore and has since coached at Tallmadge, Jackson and Twinsburg.
He also served as the coach for the Tri-County All-star teams.
Whitmer has been a part of nine sectional, four district and two regional championships along with two final four teams.
“I look forward to get going here and enjoy winning probably as much as you do,” Whitmer said at the meeting. “That’s the goal.”
Whitmer was an assistant at Twinsburg when the Tigers won Division I state championships in 2011 and 2012 and were state runner-up in 2013.
