Terrones resigns at South Hamilton, takes Gilbert job
August 8, 2014 - Troy Banning
WEBSTER CITY — B.J. Terrones is going home.
Terrones verbally resigned his position as the head boys basketball coach at South Hamilton on Friday and has accepted the same position at Gilbert, according to South Hamilton Athletic Director Todd Coy.
Terrones, who sources said interviewed for the Gilbert position Friday morning, has declined to comment at this time.
Terrones compiled a 35-13 record in his two years in charge of the South Hamilton program. The Hawks went 21-4 in 2013-14 and advanced to the Class 2A state tournament for the first time since 1991. They also went 16-2 in the Heart of Iowa Conference and took outright ownership of the league championship for the first time since 2001.
A 1995 graduate of Gilbert High School, Terrones led the Tigers to a runner-up finish in 2A as a senior before embarking on a four-year stint as an Iowa Hawkeye.
Terrones will inherit a Gilbert program that went 13-10 and reached the 3A district final round this past winter. The Tigers will return their top five scorers in 2014-15, including senior Wes Greder (14.6 points per game) and sophomore Jack Hoiberg (10.7), the son of Iowa State men’s basketball coach Fred Hoiberg.
But he’s also saying goodbye to a South Hamilton program that is on the rise. The Hawks graduated seven of their top eight scorers, but they will return 6-foot-4 sophomore-to-be guard Collin Hill — widely regarded as one of the state’s top two or three players in the class of 2017. Hill averaged 16.8 points per game and snagged all-state honors during his freshman season.
Terrones is an Assistant Attorney General and lives in the Gilbert school district on the north side of Ames.
