Goodin hopes to take what he has learned as an assistant men's basketball coach at Georgetown College and help revive the boys' program at Doss High School next season.
The former Tiger who helped to win a national championship in 1998, will be taking over as head coach of the Dragons. The Louisville school went 4-23 a season ago, but Goodin is no stranger to turning a program around.

Before returning to GC as an assistant for Happy Osborne, he was head coach for one season at Louisville Western. He took the Trojans from a 5-19 team in 2004-05 to a 15-15 finish in 2005-06. He then joined Happy Osborne on the sidelines - a time he will not soon forget.

"The experience I've had here is second to none," Goodin said. "I cannot express my appreciation to Happy and the staff here at Georgetown enough. It was a true blessing to be able to return to the school where I had so much collegiate success and learn under my coach."

Following the 1998-99 season, where the Tigers made it to the Sweet 16, Goodin received a job with Louisville Western as an assistant. He left Georgetown and finished his degree at Kentucky State University.

"I'm very excited about the opportunity in front of me, and while it is hard to leave Georgetown, it is the right move for me and my family at this time," Goodin said, who will not only be coaching, but also be teaching physical education at Doss.

During his four seasons on the sidelines, the Tigers were 117-17 with a final four appearance in the NAIA National tournament in 2008.

"We will surely miss K.C. Without question he has given all he has to our program. As an individual, I enjoyed coaching with him as much as anybody I've coached with in my life," Osborne said. "He has been a combination father, big brother, and best friend to our players. He has such a bright future, and I know he will be successful. One of the things I enjoyed most about K.C. was having his sons around our program, and I will miss Aaron, Kenyon, and Kade."
