Husband and wife coaching duo Joel and Ashley Ayers have been tapped to take the reins of the Riverdale girls basketball program.

The announcement was made Tuesday by Principal Tamera Blair. Joel will be the head coach while his wife Ashley will join the staff as an assistant. They come from Dyersburg after taking over the program there for former Riverdale coach Randy Coffman back in 2015.

They take over for Amy Josephson, who resigned last month.
