Elkin hired as NRHS boys hoops coach

John Elkin, a former New Richmond High School player and assistant coach, was hired as the NRHS boys basketball varsity coach on Monday.

Elkin was offered the position Monday. After he agreed to take the position, his name was submitted to the New Richmond Board of Education at the board's meeting Monday night and the board approved his hiring.

Because Elkin is not a member of the school teaching staff, he is being hired to a one-year contract.

Elkin was assistant head coach for the Tiger boys for eight years when Al Waschke served as the team's head coach.
