Lincoln County High School has removed the interim tag and named James Jackson head coach of the Lady Pats basketball program. Jackson stepped in late last summer to fill the position.

Coach Jackson was previously the head coach of the Georgetown College women’s basketball program for the past four years before stepping down last March. Jackson was also an assistant coach for the Georgetown College men’s team from 2011-17, helping guide the team to two national tournament finals and one national championship.

Before joining the Georgetown College staff, Jackson was an assistant coach under Rick Pitino at the University of Louisville during the 2007-09 seasons. He also spent time on staff at Kentucky Wesleyan and Berea College as a student assistant. Jackson began his coaching career as an assistant boys coach, for his father Jeff Jackson, at Lincoln County High School from 2004-06.
