Coach Vic Self announced Friday that he would be ending his 20 year career as the Monterey High School head boy's basketball coach.
Lubbock I.S.D. Executive Director of Athletics Gary Gaines said, "Coach Self informed me earlier this week that he had made the decision to step down from his position as head boy's basketball coach at Monterey. Coach Self has served Monterey as a teacher/coach for 25 years and he will be missed on the court."
Monterey Head Coach James Morton said, "After 20 years as head coach and 25 years total on the Monterey basketball staff, he has assembled an outstanding record. Coach Self holds a career record at Monterey High School of 416 wins. He has led teams to numerous district titles and post-season play. He has been named to the District Coach of the Year list five times and has been tapped as the All-City and All South Plains Coach of the Year. Coaching isn't just about the win column... it is also about building Plainsmen Pride and teaching young men the life lessons of teamwork that sports offers. As an educator, Coach Self was honored by Lubbock Christian University with the ‘Beyond the Call' Education Award and named to the LCU Hall of Honor."
