Beebout heads west

PIERRE, S.D. (Dakota Radio Group)  – Kirk Beebout has been named as the new girls’ basketball head coach for the Pierre Governors. Beebout has spent the last seven seasons as boys’ head coach at Hamlin, where he led the Chargers to an 83-70 record. He does have experience coaching girls’ basketball with the Sacred Hoops program, thanks to Allan Bertram, the former Chamberlain girls’ head coach, who recently took over the Rapid City Central girls’ program.

Beebout says he is proud of what he did as Hamlin boys’ head coach.

Beebout has nothing against Class A, where he coached at Hamlin, but he said that being at an AA school is a great opportunity.

Beebout replaces Scott DeBoer, who recently resigned after seven seasons and is moving to Watertown, where his wife will become an elementary school principal.
