Boys Varsity Basketball · Smith Retires as BHS Boys Basketball Coach

After 4 seasons, Jerry Smith is stepping down as the head boys basketball coach at Bremen High School.  After considering the rigors of coaching for another season, especially in the current COVID-19 environment, Coach Smith has decided to hang up the whistle.  Smith stated, “With farming and all of the new procedures with COVID, it is best for me to step down at this time.  I loved working with all the boys over the last few years.  The current team is a good young group of players and the next coach will be able to come in and take them to the next level. I want to thank all the coaches that have assisted me during the last 4 years and look forward to the team’s future success. Thanks to Troy and the administration for their support.  Go Lions!”  

Bremen Athletic Director, Troy Holmes, stated, “We appreciate and thank Coach Smith for leading the boys basketball program and sharing his knowledge and love for the game.  A 1978 graduate of Bremen High School, Jerry invested countless hours through the years while serving in a multitude of coaching positions at Bremen.  Coach Smith stressed playing the game “the right way” and giving one’s best effort.  Both as a player and coach, Jerry has always represented Bremen basketball in the most favorable light.  Thanks again Coach!”
