Travis Farmer, who posted a four-year record of 37-55 as Gibson Southern High School’s boys’ basketball coach, has resigned his position. He guided the Titans to a 5-18 mark this past season.
“I am very gracious for the opportunity to have been Gibson Southern’s head boys’ basketball coach for the past four years,” Farmer stated. “I have many memories that I will always cherish. I want to thank the student athletes for their trust, care and commitment while wearing the Titan uniform and to all of the assistant coaches for their hard work and loyalty. I wish nothing but the best to this program in the future.”
Farmer inherited a program coming off four successive losing seasons and had problems turning it around. It began promisingly enough as he led Gibson Southern to a 12-11 record his first two years, before the program trailed off.
Gibson Southern athletic director Jon Adams said Farmer will remain at Gibson Southern as an English teacher.
“We appreciate coach Farmer’s hard work and dedication to the basketball program at Gibson Southern,” stated Adams. “He always did things first class and worked hard to improve the program during his tenure and as the head coach. We will begin our search for our next head basketball coach immediately.”
