Josh Kimbler

Coach Dennis Gourley is beginning his ninth year with the Stars. He has been the steady hand that has kept the team moving. He was a standout guard at this College and also at Bethel University in McKenzie, Tennessee. He is well-known as a head basketball coach at various local high schools. We are thankful that he is back with us for our ninth season.

Coach Josh Kimbler is entering his first year as an assistant at the collegiate level. After multiple combat deployments to the Middle East, this United States Army veteran is currently finishing up his last year at WKCTC. He plans on achieving a master’s degree in athletic management and coaching; and hopes to one day be a head coach at the Division 1 level.
