DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) — This week, Delphi Community High School athletic director Kevin Sims announced Oracle Basketball would feature a new head coach. Austin Cowley, former head coach of Pioneer, will take over for Brian McCammon. Coach Cowley holds a 90-76 overall record in his seven year head coaching tenure with the Panthers. The Winamac graduate has also spent time with his alma mater Warriors, the Harrison Raiders, and the South Newton Rebels. Cowley is an Indiana native that has always had a love for the game.
The Delphi Oracle Basketball program is coming off of a 9-14 season with a first round sectional elimination. Former head coach Brian McCammon posted a 47-72 record in his five years with Delphi.
Coach Cowley isn’t focusing on specifics this early in the year. Instead, he wants to bring the team together.
“To me it's all about the player-coach relationship, I keep that first,” said Cowley. “That’s the real engine of how we’ve been able to have success coaching high school kids.”
