South County is looking for a new head boys’ basketball coach.

Bryon Graven told his players this past weekend that he was leaving the coaching and teaching position to accept a job in the private sector. He says it was for financial and family reasons.

Graven says he does not plan to return to coaching.

Graven took over the South County program five years ago, and finished 73-63 there.

His 25 wins last season was a record for a South County team.

Graven was in the coaching profession for 16 years. His father, Doug Graven, was a long time coach with Auburn.

Bryon Graven served as the south squad coach for the Country Financial West Central Illinois Boys’ All Star Classic last month.
