The Jackson Showboats have found their man and they didn't have to look very far to find him. Grant Worsley, Showboats General Manager, announced today at Two Sisters restaurant in Jackson that Wright Busching will be the first head coach in franchise history.
Busching is a Jackson native who graduated from Jackson Academy. He went to college at Ole Miss, where he earned a degree in history with minors in business and English, and has been an assistant and Jackson State for the last three seasons.
Worsley, Busching and several players, including former Mississippi State player Dietric Slater, were on hand for the announcement. The Showboats are still evaluating their roster before the season begins later this fall.
