Less than a month after first-year head coach Terry Johnson stepped down as coach of the Centennial boys basketball team, the Cougars have found a new head coach.
Former David Lipscomb University standout Pete Froedden will take the reigns next season after most recently working as a coach in Chicago.
Froedden coached at Wheaton Academy in Chicago and before that served as an assistant at Lipscomb University, including a stint as the interim head coach.
While playing at Lipscomb, Froedden amassed 1,053 points as a three-year starter and 146 victories playing under legendary coach Don Meyer.
He began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Austin Peay State University. Froedden’s first head coaching job came in 1994 at Hillsboro High School. He then went on to become the Athletic Director and Head Coach at Harding Academy in Memphis, turning a 7-15 team into the region runner-up at his first year at the helm.
Froedden went 114-68 at Harding Academy, winning three district championships and being selected district Coach of the Year two times before returning to his alma mater.
