Coaching change slated for boys' basketball
Mustang Public Schools has learned that Terry Long is resigning from his position as the Mustang High School boy’s basketball coach effective today, Monday, Oct. 3. He will continue his teaching duties with Mustang Schools.

“Coach Long said that economically he has reached a position personally where he must make changes to provide for his family,” said Superintendent Dr. Sean McDaniel. “He’s heartbroken to make this announcement as the season has just started, but the time has come when he feels there is no other choice.”

While Long will teach during the day, he will be giving private lessons in the evening, a much more lucrative option than what the school can provide with a coaching stipend.

“Coach Long is one of the premier 6A coaches in the state,” McDaniel said. “We have been blessed to have him be part of the Bronco athletics program.”

Mustang High School Assistant Principal Robert Foreman, who was a basketball coach for many years, is taking over the program for the remainder of the season. McDaniel said Foreman understands this will be a difficult transition for the team, but he’s excited about the opportunity to step in and lead a team as talented as this one. Foreman brings a wealth of knowledge to the program. He has coached four years at the collegiate level, 13 years as a high school head coach, with nine of these as a 6A head boys’ coach. He is currently the Director of the Oklahoma Swish Basketball Club. Players were made aware of the change Monday afternoon.
