District Coach of the Year
Bob King Awards

Since 1972, the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association members have selected a “Coach of the Year” from the five districts that were previously designated by the Indiana High School Athletic Association.

The Awards are presented in the name of Coach Bob King, our long-time executive director of Indiana Basketball Coaches Association who was active in the IBCA as a consultant at the ripe young age of 85! Bob is well-known as the longtime member of the Purdue University coaching staff and athletic administration. He was 1984 recipient of the Joe Boland Award, given by Indiana sportswriters for service to athletics, and a past president of the Indiana Collegiate Coaches Association. He played and then coached basketball and football 13 years at Indianapolis Shortridge, and is a graduate of Butler University. He was inducted into the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame in 1986!
