RPS 205 announced the new head coach of the Auburn girls basketball program on Friday. Former RVC assistant women's basketball coach Darryl Watkins will take over the Lady Knights program.
Watkins, an Auburn graduate, won three national championships in 2013, 2015, and 2017 with Misty Opat at Rock Valley College. He was an instrumental recruiter for RVC, bringing local talent to the program to build an annual championship contender.
Watkins also coached with the Midwest Wildcats program.
"I am extremely excited to be able to come back home and give back to my community and alma mater," Watkins said on his Twitter account.
