Perkins in line as head coach at CHHS

It’s not official yet, but Lason Perkins is expected to be named the new head basketball coach at Chapel Hill High School.

Tim Bennett, the incoming Chapel Hill High School director of athletics, was in town last Friday to visit CHHS staff and coaches but left without making an announcement about vacancies within the program. He still has more than a week left in his present job at Roanoke Rapids before assuming his duties in Chapel Hill on Oct. 21.

But sources close to the CHHS program said during the weekend that Perkins was offered the job late Friday.

Perkins was the chief assistant coach under Tod Morgan, subbing as the CHHS head coach when Morgan was on leave for the birth of his first child during the 2011-12 season. Morgan left Chapel Hill last week for his new post at C.B. Aycock in Pikeville.

“Lason is a great guy and would be a great hire,” Morgan texted in response to inquiries about Perkins’ possible promotion.

Perkins fits Chapel Hill High School’s needs on more than one level; the school would prefer to have a current teacher as head coach since the available teaching post formerly occupied by Morgan will go to Bennett. Perkins is an on-line learning coordinator on the staff at CHHS.
