By Richard Davenport
Former University of Arkansas standout and assistant coach Scotty Thurman has been named the new boys basketball coach at Little Rock Parkview.
"I am extremely excited to take over the Parkview program," Thurman said. "It has been a successful academic institution and a traditional power in basketball. I am super excited to be named head basketball coach."
Thurman replaces Al Flanigan, who retired after winning seven state titles in 11 championship game appearances at Parkview. He had a 545-147 record in 23 years at the school while also winning 12 conference championships.
"This is a tremendous opportunity to build on to the legacy that Coach Flanigan and his staff have already set," Thurman said. "I couldn't be more proud and excited to get started working with Parkview, its faculty, staff, administration and its student body."
