Darrin Clark was named interim head coach of Woodstock High School’s boys basketball team for the 2014-15 season on Friday, according to a release from the school district.

Clark replaces Brady Richeson, who spent three seasons at Woodstock. Richeson had been working with the program as recently as last week, when he teamed with Sequoyah coach Jeremy Adams for their annual youth camp.

Richeson said the reason for his resignation was to spend more time at home.

“It was, 100 percent, my personal decision," he said. "I’m going to invest in my family.”

Richeson and his wife, Rebecca, have two children, Gymmer and Fynn.

Richeson went 24-53 in his time as Woodstock’s coach. The Wolverines’ best season under his watch came in 2012-13, when they finished 11-15 and 7-7 in Region 5AAAAAA.

Prior to taking the position at Woodstock, Richeson spend four years as an assistant coach at Sequoyah, where he helped Adams in leading the Chiefs to a 29-1 record in 2011 — setting the record for consecutive wins for a Cherokee County team.

Before moving to Georgia, Richeson was a standout college player at Texas State. He is a native of Mesa, Ariz.

Clark has worked in Cherokee County schools for the last 10 years. The last three years, he assisted Richeson as a junior varsity coach and varsity assistant the Wolverines. He also taught physical education at Woodstock Middle School.

Clark began his career in nearby Bartow County as an assistant basketball coach at Woodland High School. While there, he helped the Wildcats to a pair of state playoff appearances, including a trip to the state quarterfinals.

Clark lives in Cherokee County with his wife, Angie, and two children.
