DENISON, TX - The Denison Yellow Jackets boys basketball team just finished up a great season, one which saw the Jackets get to the second round of the playoffs. Now it’s time to build on that success, but the team will have to do it with a new head coach.
KXII Sports has learned that Scott Curran has accepted the position of head basketball coach at the new Byron Nelson High School just north of Fort Worth. That means Curran will be leaving Denison at the end of this school year.
The Northwest ISD School Board approved the hire this week. Curran has spent the past five years in denison and has resurrected the program from the bottom all the way to consecutive seasons with at least one playoff victory. Curran says he will miss his players and the people in Denison, but he's ready to start up a new program.
