Longtime Camden Hills basketball coach Jeff Hart is stepping down as coach to become the school's new athletic director effective July 1st.

Hart has been the Windjammers hoops coach since 1982. Just last season he went over the 500 win mark. His teams won six state titles and 10 regional championships.

Hart was inducted into the Maine Basketball Hall of Fame last August. He is also a member of the New England Basketball Hall of Fame and the Midcoast Sports Hall of Fame.

Along with coaching basketball over the years, Hart coached Camden Hills baseball for several years. He has been a longtime physical education teacher.

Hart will take over athletic duties from Steve Alex who announced back in April that he was stepping down at AD.

The announcement of the moves came at last night's district school board meeting.

Hart says he will begin the process of hiring a new basketball coach immediately.
