Chris Stobaugh has been named boys' basketball coach at North Oldham High School.
Stobaugh, an assistant coach the past two seasons at North Oldham, replaces David Henley, who posted a 34-28 record before taking the job at Eastern.
Stobaugh, 30, inherits a North Oldham program that loses four starters from a squad that finished 19-11 but does return top scorer David Levitch.
"We'll be able to build around him," Stobaugh said. "Even though we'll be inexperienced, I think we can be competitive. We'll play a little faster than we have in the past and have a more exciting brand of basketball."
The 2000 DeSales graduate was an assistant there and at Male before heading to North Oldham. He also was DeSales' head coach during the 2005-06 season, posting a 21-10 record and leading the Colts to the Sixth Region Tournament final before they fell to Pleasure Ridge Park.
