MIDDLEBURY, Ind. — Scott Radeker was hired Tuesday to be the varsity boys basketball head coach at Northridge High School. He’s the eighth boys varsity head basketball coach for the district. The Middlebury Community Schools board of education approved Redeker’s hiring at a regular meeting today. Scott was selected as the next leader of the Raiders from a pool of 31 applicants.
Radeker replaces 2005 NHS graduate Ronnie Thomas, who resigned the position in April with a 76-60 record after six seasons.
Radeker has coached basketball for nearly three decades, most recently serving for eight seasons as the head coach at Lafayette Jefferson High School, where he posted a record of 97-88. After going 37-51 in his first four seasons, Lafayette Jefferson won at least 14 games in each of his last four seasons. Radeker was selected to be an assistant coach for the Indiana All-Star team this June.
Radeker was also head coach at North Montgomery High School for nine seasons, compiling an overall record of 120-80 while winning four sectional titles from 2005 to 2009. Before that, he was an assistant coach at Noblesville High School, where he coached 1997 Indiana Mr. Basketball, Tom Coverdale.
“We are really excited to have Scott on board. He brings great knowledge of basketball but more importantly a caring attitude toward his athletes and students ” Northridge High School athletic director Dave Harms said. “I think it’s going to be exciting, and I’m looking forward to getting started with Scott.”
Radeker will join the Northridge High School staff as a Physical Education teacher. Originally from New York, he has been a health and physical education teacher for 25 years. Radeker was also the assistant athletic director at Lafayette Jefferson High School.
He and his wife, Robyn, have two children, Kendra and Kamden.
