Liberty County High School will be searching for a new head basketball coach after Julian Stokes resigned. Stokes made a public announcement March 13 on his Facebook Page. Stokes led the Panthers to a state title in 2016, four final fours, three region championships and five playoff appearances.
“I’ve left my mark here in a short amount of time with so much more to give and I am forever grateful for the opportunity to lead,” Stokes posted. “This chapter may be closed for now and I just want to thank all my true and loyal supporters of me and the program. Coaching is a passion I have, and this isn’t the end. But for now, I need to focus on the next step in my life. I’m able to spend more time with my son and become an even better father and build myself as a better man.”
