Latta basketball coach leaving after back-to-back titles

Posted:
ADA, OK -- Two-time state champion and former coach of the year Donnie Husband is leaving Latta after winning back-to-back titles.

The Durant High School hall-of-famer says he's taking over as the head coach at Merritt High School after 13 years at LHS.

The Panthers won their first title in 2013 under his leadership, then would defend it in March.

Husband tells KTEN the move to Merritt is a good opportunity for he and his family.

He turned down an offer to be the Edmond North head basketball coach back in 2010.
