Covering High School Sports in America
Who's the winningest boys basketball coach in Kentucky history? That depends on who you ask.

Billy Hicks, Scott County

In an example of how career coaching records can be tough to verify, Scott County (Georgetown, Ky.) leader Billy Hicks was thought to have set the state's record for career victories last week. Now his record is in flux as he chases William Kean of Louisville Central with 856 victories.

According to a story from last week, a review of Hicks' career showed discrepancies and the Kentucky High School Athletic Association ruled that he was at 837 wins - not the 846 he claimed. The exact number is still being figured out.

Records from the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches state he began the season with 817 wins. See what the KHSAA came up with through extensive research by clicking here.

MaxPreps hopes to prevent these occurrences as the years roll along, as we have commenced keeping school record books and tracking coaches' records.
