Powell accepts Westwood AD job

Jason Powell, a fixture on the Richland Northeast basektball scene since 1994, has resigned to accept the athletics director job at Westwood.

Jason Powell has resigned as the head boys basketball coach at Richland Northeast to become the new athletics director at Westwood – the newest Richland 2 district school that opened in August.

“I am very excited about the new position, but I know that I will miss the years I spent at RNE,” said Powell. “And, of course, I’m sure I’ll miss coaching, but I can’t say that I will never coach again at some point.”

Powell was a fixture on the RNE hoop scene since arriving as an assistant under new Cavaliers coach Gary Fulmer in 1994. He got his first head job at Spring Valley in 2001-02 before returning to his old home base to replace Fulmer the following season.

Powell’s career record is 199-114.
