After a second postseason run, Nolensville boys basketball head coach Wes Lambert will be heading back home to continue his coaching career.
The school announced Friday that Lambert will be stepping away from his post to pursue an assistant coaching and math teaching opportunity with Maryville High School, his alma mater.
“He has laid a tremendous foundation for our basketball program,” Nolensville principal Bill Harlin said in a release.
“In the first three years of Nolensville High School, he has achieved one district title, two region titles and two sectional appearances. I want to thank Coach Lambert for his leadership on the court, within the school, and in our community. We wish him the best in his future endeavors.
“At this time, we will be opening up a coaching search to pick the best candidate to lead our basketball program into the future.”
The Nolensville boys team reached the substate round of the Class AA tournament after winning its second-straight Region 6-AA title in its three years of competition.
Lambert went 46-43 in his time at the helm of the Knights, which does include the school’s first season of competition.
He has a special connection to Maryville, Tennessee, as his father, Randy Lambert, has just retired from coaching basketball after his his 39th season with the Maryville College Scots.
One of Lambert’s seniors, Hudson Stromen, signed with the school this spring to play college ball.
Nolensville will also see key players Nate Bloedorn, Zach Campbell, Jayden Watkins, Reese Gilbert and Brandon Wharton II graduate this May.
They’ll return Nathan Foutch and Davin Watkins this fall.
