There are at least three openings for boys’ basketball coaches in Alamance County.

Eastern Alamance and Southern Alamance have begun the process to fill vacancies that have occurred since the end of the season in the late winter. Southeast Alamance, which opens in August, must have a coach as well.

Eastern Alamance finished with an 11-14 record in its third season under Brad Costa.
The Eagles were fifth in the seven-team Central 3-A Conference. Eastern lost 13 of its last 17 games.

Costa’s three-year mark was 25-37.

Southern Alamance went 6-19 with coach Chris Miller. The Patriots were last in the seven-team DAC-VII Conference with a 1-11 record.

The Patriots won just once in their last 13 games, avenging a 24-point league loss to Durham Hillside. That marked Southern’s only victory against an out-of-county opponent.
Southern was 18-44 in Miller’s three seasons. He’ll remain on the coaching staff for the football team.

Athletics directors John Kirby of Eastern and Stephanie Smith of Southern said the processes to fill those openings have begun.
