Everingham had 67-72 record in six seasons with Barons

Wednesday, March 19, 2014 07:14 pm
The DeKalb Central Board of Education accepted the resignation of boys' basketball coach Jon Everingham at a meeting on Wednesday evening. In six seasons under Everingham, DeKalb went 67-72 and notched four double-digit win campaigns.

This year, the Barons finished 8-15 while battling injuries and lost 41-24 to Northrop in sectional play.

“I am very proud of the accomplishments of the boys basketball team over the past six seasons,” said Everingham in a statement. “When I arrived here, there was not much to work with as far as returning players and no feeder program.

“As I exit the program, the boys' basketball team will return 13 letterwinners and an amazing 244 players currently participating in our feeder program.”

Everingham departs as the second-longest tenured coach in DeKalb boys basketball history, behind former Barons and current Center Grove coach Cliff Hawkins.

Everingham also coached two years at Argos prior to coming to DeKalb and holds an overall career record of 93-87.

“Although winning was nice, I never got into education and coaching to win games,” Everingham said. “I got into coaching to have a positive impact on young people's lives.

“The thing that makes me most proud is the values our basketball staff has instilled in these young men that they can take with them the rest of their lives.”

Everingham will continue in his current position as a teacher at DeKalb High School and is looking forward to the future.

“(My family) is definitely excited about new coaching opportunities,” Everingham said. “We will be looking.”
