Cloverdale will be in search of a new boys basketball coach.
According to a Facebook post Patrick Rady says he will continue as a teacher at Cloverdale.
After months of prayer, discussions with my family, and coaching colleagues, I have decided to step down as the varsity boys basketball coach at Cloverdale High School. I will continue to teach at Cloverdale HS. This was not an easy decision, as coaching has been a part of my life since I was a senior in 1988. However, right now I need a respite from the day-to-day grind of coaching.
As a young boy I dreamed of coaching HS basketball in the state of Indiana. My boyhood idol was my father, and with his guidance I was able to have doors open up for me to reach my dream.
I want to thank all of the administrators, secretaries, bus drivers, and custodians who helped make my time as a coach a lot easier! A thank you to the officials and opposing coaches whom I have learned from as well.
Most importantly I want to thank those who I went to work with on a daily basis, my assistant coaches and players. It truly has been a family. Through the good times and bad times, I wouldn’t want to go through it with anyone else!
So, to all my former players from the Terre Haute Boys Club, Honey Creek Middle School, Sarah Scott Middle School, Terre Haute South HS, Southwestern HS(Hanover), and Cloverdale HS, thank you for your time and your effort!
God-willing I look forward to coming and watching your sons/daughters and grandsons/granddaughters play!
To my assistants, thank you for your hard work and loyalty!
Rady was 100-77 at Cloverdale including sectional titles in his first three seasons, 2016-2018. He’s 141-147 overall including five seasons at Southwestern (Hanover).
