A      The school board did not re-hire Bobby Toon after the 1983 season, and hired Craynor Slone…who had just led
       neighboring Carlisle County to a 40-4 season and a state tournament runner-up finish. How that changed I
       don’t know. A Paducah Sun article in late 1991 said Slone “bolted” for the Ashland job later in the spring of
       ‘83. Ashland finished the 1984 season as 16th region runner-up with a 25-8 record; while Allan Hatcher came
       to Draffenville & made the Marshals a state tournament team for the first time.

                        left for University Heights Academy in Hopkinsville and promptly won a state
                        championship in his first season there--1992. He stayed at UHA for 12 seasons with
                        three state tourney appearances.

       from the Lexington Herald-Leader…by Mike Fields:
Kirk Chiles, who has revitalized Henry Clay's boys' basketball program since returning to his hometown high school in
1998, is retiring as a teacher and coach.
"After 30 years and 913 games as a head coach, it's time," Chiles said yesterday after telling his staff and players of his
decision.
"I've always been very goal-oriented, and back 15 or 20 years ago I thought that if I could coach for 30 years and win
over 600 ball games, that'd be great.
"I also had one other goal -- I wanted to retire before I got bald," he said with a laugh.
Chiles, 57, still has plenty of hair, maybe because he hasn't had reason to tear it out: He's been a winner every place he's
been.
His first head coaching job was at Kentucky Business College in 1975. From there, he hopscotched to five high schools
across the state -- Cawood, Somerset, Lyon County, Marshall County and Henry Clay.
He is one of seven coaches in state history to guide three schools to the Sweet Sixteen. He did it at Somerset (1985),
Marshall County (1995) and Henry Clay (2003, 2005).
Chiles, who had an overall record of 603-310, is proud that his longest tenure (eight years) and most wins (159) came
at Henry Clay, the school he graduated from in 1967.
When Chiles took over the Devils' program in 1998, it was at rock-bottom, and he had doubts about whether the
school's proud tradition could be reestablished.
"It looked very bleak," he said. "But I kept the faith."
Henry Clay was back among the state's elite the last few years. It reached the state semifinals in 2003 and the
quarterfinals in '05.
Chiles figured that his wife of 31 years, Dianne, would be relieved to be free of the stress of having a coach for a
husband.
"But she's very sad," he said. "This has always been a family-oriented deal with us. We've raised three girls, and they're
going to miss watching their daddy coach."
Will he have withdrawal pains when pre-season practice starts in October?
"I do know I'm going to miss the big games and tournament time.
"But it's been a good run and a lot of fun. I've been blessed."
Chiles said he's looking to get involved in a second career, and radio broadcasting has an appeal.
