Salisbury Names Men’s Head Basketball Coach

       SALISBURY– Bryan Withers has been named head coach for the Salisbury High School’s men’s basketball program, according to a press release from the school.

       There were over 60 applicants for the head coaching position. Salisbury High School principal Luke Brown stated, “We worked very diligently throughout the interviewing process to select the top candidates to be interviewed for this position. Bryan impressed us with his basketball knowledge, willingness to help the school in whatever capacity, and understanding of our students and community.” 

       Withers is a 1988 graduate of Salisbury where he played on a team that won the 1987 North Carolina High School Athletic Association 2-A state championship in men’s basketball. He later went on to play college basketball at UNC-Wilmington. Withers has been the men’s head coach at South Rowan for the past three seasons.

       "We are very excited to have Bryan Withers come home to Salisbury High School, stated Salisbury High athletic director Dale Snyder. “His knowledge of our community and our athletes will make him a tremendous asset not only to our basketball program, but to our athletic program as a whole.”

       Withers said, “I am so excited to go back to the place that I consider home. It will be bitter sweet in leaving because I've had some great learning experiences at South Rowan. I will be leaving at a time in which there will be some exciting changes going on at South Rowan, but going back to a place that is also making great changes. I look forward to meeting with my new players and getting to work with them this summer. I also look forward to working with the staff at SHS.  I would like to thank Mr. Brown and Mr. Snyder for the opportunity to become the basketball coach at Salisbury High School.”
