The NHSCA, National High School Coaches Association, is proud to announce Randy Coffman, head coach at Riverdale High School in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, as its 2017 National High School Girls’ Basketball Coach of the Year. 


Coffman led Riverdale to its second straight Tennessee Class AAA championship during the 2016-17 school year.  Riverdale was named national champs by USA TODAY and MaxPreps after finishing with a 34-0 record. Coffman, who was also named the 2017 Naismith High School Girls’ Coach of the Year, has led his team to 43 straight wins since the 2015-16 season.


Coffman was named Riverdale’s head coach prior to the 2015-16 season after coaching at Dyersburg High School for years.  His record at Riverdale is 66-4.  His lifetime coaching record is 433-163.


“We are extremely pleased to honor Coach Coffman,” said Eric Hess, Executive Director of the NHSCA. “Randy has done an outstanding job of elevating Riverdale to national prominence with a lifetime record of leading his student-athletes on the court and in the classroom.”

Coffman is the second Tennessee coach to be named the NHSCA National Girls’ Basketball Coach of the Year. Blackman’s Chad Hibdon won the award in 2015.
