After graduating from Liberty Hill High School in 1994, Corey Cunningham has returned to Williamson County as the newest member of coach Rhonda Farney’s highly successful Georgetown Lady Eagles basketball program.

Cunningham, who is entering his 10th season in coaching, and 12th in teaching comes to GHS from Cameron Yoe where he was the head girls basketball coach. At Georgetown, he also will be an assistant track coach and a teacher in the business department where he will teach principles of business, marketing and finance. He will be replacing last year’s JV coach Kevin Spruill, who resigned after last season and has taken a position at Lake Travis where he will be an assistant cross country and track coach.

With the hiring of Cunningham, Farney has restructured her program somewhat with Tosha Doherty moving up to JV coach and Cunningham coaching the Freshman White (B) while learning the ins and outs of the Georgetown system. Katie Youngblood will remain the Freshman Blue (A) coach. Doherty and Youngblood are second-year members of Farney’s staff.  “He’s a product of school people,” Farney answered what made him the right candidate to fill the position. “His father was the principal at Liberty Hill and he grew up in a family of educators. I  had an overall feeling that he was the right hire. Also, he wanted the position with his family in mind.”

Cunningham is a 1999 graduate of the University of Texas where he earned a bachelor of business administration and a masters in professional accounting. Prior to his three-year stay at Class 3A Yoe, Cunningham served as an assistant coach at Tahoka in the South Plains for four years and at Brevard High School, N.C., for four years. He was the head coach at Brevard for two seasons. He pointed to family as the prime reason for his decision to come to Georgetown. “I’m fairly recently married and we wanted great schools for our kids.” Asked about his philosophy of coaching, Cunningham answered that he believes in “players first, helping give them the skills to be successful and reach their potential — making them the best they can possibly be.” Looking at the GHS program, he said, “It is built on fundamentals. I can tell the coaches love the kids they teach. There is a great work ethic here.”
