Bowling Green girls’ basketball coach Calvin Head smiles after receiving the game ball following the Lady Purples’ 58-48 win over Barren County in the Region 4 Tournament final on March 7 at E.A. Diddle Arena.

Bowling Green High School named Calvin Head as the school’s new athletic director Wednesday.

Head previously served three years as assistant athletic director at Bowling Green, and three years as athletic director at Russellville High School, including being named the 2017 4th Region Athletic Director of the Year. Head replaces D.G. Sherrill in the athletic director role at Bowling Green.

I couldn’t be more excited.”

Head is entering his 10th year as a head basketball coach, starting his fourth as the Bowling Green girls’ basketball coach, and with three years experience as the Russellville girls’ basketball coach and four as the Todd County Central boys’ basketball coach.

He also has seven years experience as a head softball coach; two at Russellville and five at Todd County Central.

As athletic director, Head will be responsible for overseeing the athletics program at Bowling Green including archery, baseball, basketball (boys and girls), cheer, cross country (boys and girls), softball, E-sports, football, golf (boys and girls), lacrosse (boys and girls), soccer (boys and girls), swimming (boys and girls), tennis (boys and girls), track and field (boys and girls) and volleyball.

Head will work to schedule and monitor events and trips, oversee budgeting, bids and ticket sales, work to ensure compliance and athlete eligibility, officiating, sports media, coaching clinics and game-day ceremonies.
