I learned today that on Monday (July 2nd) the Jackson Showboats will formally announce the first head coach of the new franchise. The announcement will be made at Two Sisters Kitchen in Jackson at 11a.m. this Monday.
I have been told that the new coach has ties not only to Mississippi but to Jackson as well.
Several players will be in attendance at the announcement along with team owner Grant Worsley. The Jackson Showboats are a new American Basketball Association franchise and will begin their inaugural later this year.
