Bruce Smith, who retired from his position as boys head basketball coach at Whitmer High School following the 2012-13 season, is set to succeed Marc Jump as Southview's next boys coach.
Southview athletic director Susan Felver confirmed today that Smith was offered the position, and that Smith has accepted that offer.
The hiring is subject to the approval of the Sylvania school board.
While at Whitmer, Smith guided the Panthers to a Division I state runner-up finish in 2012, and to a trip to the state semifinals in 2008.
He is also retiring from his teaching position with Washington Local Schools at the conclusion of this school year.
