Bill Hockenberry has been named interim girls basketball coach at Rockvale.

He joined the boys staff last season as an assistant coach after nine-years as head coach at Smyrna Middle School. Hockenberry has also been a boys assistant coach at both Siegel and La Vergne High Schools.

The late departure of Lindy King, who took an assistant principal position at Riverdale and the start of school amid COVID-19 left only a short amount of time for a decision.

The Hockenberry name has been synonymous with girls basketball in the county. His dad, George, was head coach at Oakland in the 80's and early 90's before former coach Jennifer Grandstaff took over the program.
