GARDEN CITY - A familiar face is returning to West Texas, pending school board approval April 13, to be the head girls basketball coach at Garden City.

Former Grady boys basketball coach Thomas Clay has accepted an offer to be the head coach of the Lady Bearkats to take over for Jordan Merkord, who resigned after just one year in Garden City.

Clay was very successful at Grady leading the Wildcats to a 141-27 record from 2010-15 and led the program to four regional tournament appearances, a state tournament appearance in 2012 and a Class 1A state championship appearance in 2015.

Clay also coached boys basketball at Valley, Monahans, Meadow, Krum and Lorenzo and most recently was the girls head coach at Lorenzo.
