Stacy Pendleton, who has coached the Bears at the Brown School the past two seasons, where his team won the 7th region All A Tournament and he was named 7th Region Coach of the Year in 2018, has been named the Head Basketball Coach at Assumption High School.

Pendleton is best known for his time at DuPont Manual where he coached from 2004 to 2013. In nine seasons at the helm, Pendleton’s record was 240-58 and he led his team to the elusive KHSAA state title in 2012. His teams at Manual made 4 final four appearances (2008, 2011 Runner-Up, 2012 Champion, 2013) and were LIT champions in 2011 and 2012.

His individual coaching accolades include Kentucky State Coach of the year by the Associated Press (2012), Lexington Herald (2012), NFHS (2012) and Regional Coach of the Year by the Courier Journal (2006, 2011, 2012, 2018) and the KABC (2006, 2008, 2011, 2012, 2018).

Pendleton was chosen as the KY/IN All Star Coach (2012) and the KY/OH All Star Coach (2010) beating Indiana and Ohio those years.

The Rockets of Assumption have had several years of up and down seasons with 4 new head coaches in the past 8 years. This past seasons record was 11-20.

“I have watched Coach Pendleton throughout his career. He develops great thinkers, creates confidence in players and is a master at getting them to believe in themselves and their abilities.” Said Assumption Athletic Director, Angela Passafiume, “hiring Stacy is a privilege and an honor and we are beyond excited to welcome him into the Assumption Community. He will restore the winning tradition of Assumption Basketball and return our program to the level of play our girls deserve and will be proud of.”

Stacy is a great addition to our coaching staff and we are excited to invite our girls to meet him next week.  We invite all potential players and parents to attend a meet and greet with Coach Pendleton on Wednesday, May 16th at 6:00 pm in the Assumption High School theatre.
