The Carlisle School Board last week accepted the resignation of second-year boys basketball coach Jayson Lowery, effective at the end of the school year.


Lowery, the first CHS returning boys coach since 2013, compiled an 8-45 record with the Bison (2-25 in 2015-16 and 6-20 in 2016-17). They had four more wins on the floor but were forced to forfeit four two years ago for use of an ineligible player.


The six wins were the most for a Bison squad since 2013.


Lowery, who had previous coaching stops at Hector, Green Forest, Mount Ida and McGehee, will finish the school year teaching social studies and serving as assistant coach for the Lady Bison softball team.


This will be the 14th coaching change for the basketball Bison since 1994-95.


Lowery did not return messages by press time.
