Dr. Douglas J. Hines

A Salute to Coach Hines 49 Years of Coaching 885/493

Native of Science Hill, Kentucky.  Earned a scholarship to Lindsey Wilson Junior College and then played under Paul McBrayer at Eastern Kentucky.  Did graduate work at Indiana University.  Took Somerset High to back-to-back State Tournaments in the early 60’s.  Named Kentucky Junior College Conference Coach of the Year three times while coaching at Lindsey Wilson.  Named Gulf South Coach of the Year in 1976 and 77 while coaching Mississippi College.  Named the Region two Coach of the Year by the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches two straight years while at Union County High.

Coached three first team All Americans while at Lindsey Wilson: Doug Pendygraft, Keith Brown and Bennie Coffman.  Coffman and Pendygraft played for UK and Brown for the Washington Huskies.

While some measure success in awards and honors, Dr. Doug Hines measures it by the number of students and basketball players he’s instilled with a sense of pride and hard work to make their lives a success.

  1. I remember when Doug Hines couched at Somerset and think he was there in 1962 when they had a great team including Jess Flynn, Kenny Gibbs, George Garr, Jerry Girdler and a boy with last name Ford. At that time I played for Eubank High School. I’ve always claimed that was the best high school team I ever saw around that area. Back then we had 16 teams in our 47 district tournament where as today your only have 4 teams and just win 1 game to go to the region.
