McKinney says Brock is extremely excited about having Brock join the DHS sports program. “Coach Brock comes to us with an extremely impressive background. His past history of player development and growing a program puts him at the top of the list of young, great coaches. We are extremely excited and fortunate to have him, “ added McKinney, “and we look forward to his reign as our new basketball coach.”
