Mike Cofer grew up competing against the North Hardin boys’ basketball program and then coaching against it, so he understands the rich tradition and commitment to winning it has.
Now, Cofer is in charge of leading the program in its next phase. North Hardin removed his interim label, making him its head coach Friday afternoon.
Cofer was named interim coach after legendary coach Ron Bevars stepped down Oct. 4. Cofer had been an assistant at North Hardin under Bevars for two years.
