FULTON, Miss. (WTVA) - Itawamba AHS hired Anna Porter as its new girls head basketball coach on Wednesday.
It's a homecoming for Porter, who played and graduated from IAHS ten years ago.
"It was in the back of my mind when I decided to coach, I'd love to go back home, I didn't think it would happen this soon, but here we are," Porter said.
Porter began her coaching career at nearby Tremont. She was there four years, the last three as head coach.
Porter led Tremont to the state tournament and hopes to get her alma mater back there.
"I have a lot of pride in this school, and a lot of pride, especially in that gym, spent many years there," she said. "I'm excited to build this program, and to see success.
"It's all about the kids, and I want to see them succeed on and off the court as well."
