Columbia, SC (WLTX) --- For just the second time in school history, White Knoll has hired a head boys basketball coach.

Jason Cochcroft was officially hired Monday to take over the Timberwolves after Bret Jones stepped down. Jones had been at the school since its beginning in 1999 and he will remain as a teacher at the school.

Cochcroft was on Jones' staff at White Knoll and he was also the head junior varsity coach.

Like Jones, Cochcroft played and coached under Bailey Harris at Lexington and is a graduate of Presbyterian College.

Cochcroft was also a four-year letterman and a senior captain for the Blue Hose.
