Warren East names Brandon Combs as boys’ basketball coach

Former Bowling Green High School assistant coach Brandon Combs was introduced Monday as Warren East’s new boys’ basketball coach.

Combs has been an assistant on the Purples’ staff since 2010-11. He was previously head coach at Cumberland County and Menifee County.

Combs replaces Casey Simpson, who resigned from Warren East in March after five seasons. The Raiders went 61-77 during Simpson’s tenure, including 51-32 over the last three seasons.

East finished 15-11 in 2013-14 and lost to South Warren in the play-in game of the District 14 Tournament.

Combs compiled a 34-68 record at Cumberland County. The Panthers won 11 total games his first two seasons but went 13-11 in 2008-09, losing by one in triple overtime to Bowling Green in the Region 4 Tournament.

He spent the 2005-06 season coaching Menifee County and was an assistant at Edmonson County, Warren Central and Metcalfe County before that.

Combs is a graduate of Barren County High School.

He’ll be the third new District 14 boys’ basketball coach next season.

Greenwood hired Jordan Carter two weeks ago to replace Jason Stonebraker, and South Warren has yet to replace Derrick Clubb.
