From 1995-2003, Marvin Howard was at Bradwell Institute, coaching the ninth grade boys basketball team as well as conducting his full-time job as assistant principal.
He has moved on to become the principal at Montgomery County Middle School and was recently named the head coach of the Montgomery County Lady Eagles basketball team.
Before Howard arrived at Bradwell, he was the head coach of Telfair County’s girls basketball team from 1983-1995. He is excited about being a head coach again and looks forward to the challenge of rebuilding a program that won only three games last season.
“Well, I’m definitely looking to improve the program,” he said. “Their coach from last year went to Baxley so they needed a coach and I have 20 years of experience so I decided to try.”
While at Bradwell, Howard said he learned a lot from head boys basketball coach David Jones.
Howard treasures the time he spent in Liberty County, saying it helped him prepare for his current position.
Jones is proud of his former colleague.
“He is truly one of the nicest guys when you talk about any of them,” he said. “I am happy for him.”
In addition to coaching basketball and being a principal, Howard also is a minister. On Sundays for the past 24 years, he has been seen at St. John’s AME church in Montgomery County spreading the gospel.
“I just have to learn how to budget time and just get it done,” he said.
