"It's very satisfying," he said. "I've been striving for a while to make the move into high school full time. It's been a goal of mine since I was in junior high school, probably, to be a high school basketball coach."

In-house coach

Shipp credited Kerrell with his work since arriving at Baker School.

"He's been real involved with our sports program," Shipp said. "He's done anything we asked him to do. He's been very interested in the basketball program since the very beginning.

"One of his primary things was he wanted to get involved in the basketball program. He's got a background himself in basketball, and it's just a sport he's always been involved with and very interested in."

Having an in-house coach made the decision to name Kerrell the girls coach easy, Brunson said.

"I think he's done a good job with our girls programs, helping with volleyball, and he's also had great success," Brunson said. "Coach Wagner has done a great job with our girls basketball program. At this time, he's ready to let that go, so the next coach in line would be coach Kerrell.
