Former Southport girls coach
to succeed Hudson as 8th
man in charge of the program
By Justin Sokeland
Bedford North Lawrence went outside its comfort zone to break precedent and hire Matt Seifers as the new boys basketball coach.
Seifers was officially introduced on Thursday night during a special session of the North Lawrence Community Schools board. He succeeds Jamie Hudson, whose contract was not renewed after 9 seasons at the helm of the program. Seifers was approved by a 6-0 vote, with one absent board member.
Seifers is the eighth coach in program history, following Bob Masterson, Mike Sorrells, Dan Bush, Mark Mathews, Mark Ryan, Damon Bailey and Hudson. He is only the second on that list to be brought in from outside the system.
