  • North fires Stobaugh

    North Oldham will have its fourth different boys basketball coach in six years on the Mustang sidelines next fall.

    North fired coach Chris Stobaugh after two years Friday, one day after the Mustangs’ 2013-14 season ended with a district tournament loss to Oldham County.

    Athletic director Alan Yanke said off-court issues rather than on-court performance were the reason for the change.
