Mark Blevins’ full retirement statement

Mark Blevins’ full statement regarding his retirement as a teacher and the boys basketball coach at Bearden:

I am ending both my basketball and teaching careers at Bearden.  I am closing this chapter of my life.  B.A. and I are officers in our church and will be looking to take a more active role.  We’ll see what lies ahead.  I want to thank all my great players (most of whom are my best friends), the Bearden community, the student bodies, and the wonderful ever changing faculties we have had through the last two decades for making it a memorable and exciting journey.  From the days of Dearstone, M. Clemmons, Karnes and company to the Barnes, Stanley, D. Clemmons to the Andreasen, Strange, T. McClunie era to the Oliver, Hampton era to the Cox, M. McClunie, Scruggs era to the Dickenson, T. White, Garner, Ware era to the Simpson, Jenkins, Craig era to the greatest era of T. Greene, R. White, D. Fair, Peake, Winton, Weida  to the Standifer, S. Greene, B. Smith era to the Graham, Campbell era to the current Duncan, Q. Fair era our teams are connected as Bulldogs.  We are committed by loyalty and love.  We are an elite membership; it is not for everybody.  We have our own greeting and we never finish our conversation without expressing the love we have for one another.  That’s been the essence of Bearden basketball.

We have been fortunate to have worked right here in Knoxville with the greatest official association and leadership on this planet led by Kenny Coulter.  While in the Tri Cities, I had the opportunity to be groomed as a young coach by the greatest basketball official to ever walk the face of the earth, Ralph Stout.

I’m a coach that tries to instill toughness, discipline, loyalty, grit, and accountability in all my players.  I was taught long ago by a little crippled lady who raised two sons by herself with no car and no TV while working minimum wage her whole life to always work harder than anybody else.  My mom was my hero.

BHS’s last 22 seasons were the winningest AAA team in Tennessee (588 – 156).  The 2015 teamfinished 28-3 and was ranked first in the state for multiple weeks.  Coach Blevins’ overall high school and collegiate record stands at  840 – 309  including winning records against all KIL teams, all District 4 former and current teams and a 27-0 record versus Tennessee privateschools.  All-time winningest coach in basketball and softball at Bearden High School.  All-timewinningest coach at Bluefield College including a 4-2 record vs some of Carson Newman’s greatest teams.

Ryan Cahak hired as Concord Christian boys basketball coach

Ryan Cahak, a former graduate men’s basketball assistant at Tennessee, was hired on Monday as Concord Christian School’s boys basketball coach.

Cahak  replaces Rob Murphy, who resigned to pursue a business opportunity in Alabama. The news was announced in a press release, which was forwarded to the News Sentinel by school headmaster Ruston Pierce.

Concord, which lost to Harriman in the opening round of the District 4-A tournament,  finished 9-15 this season.

Cahak’s coaching background includes stops at Colgate University, Lipscomb and Blackman High School in Murfreesboro. He served two seasons as a graduate assistant at UT, including in 2010-11 under Bruce Pearl and 2011-12 under Cuonzo Martin.

As a player, Cahak walked on at Syracuse under Jim Boeheim.

The full press release announcing Cahak’s hire is below:

Concord Christian School is very proud to announce Ryan Cahak as its’ new Head Boy’s Basketball Coach.  Coach Cahak’s resume and references were impeccable and spoke to his incredible basketball background.  He is the perfect person to take over a growing program that Coach Rob Murphy is leaving with a strong foundation.  Coach Cahak is excited about the opportunity, “I’m extremely humbled and grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the Concord family.  Coach Murphy has done a tremendous job building this program and pouring into the young mens’ lives.  I’m excited to be able to follow Coach Murphy and continuing to build this program.  Concord is a tremendous school with great values, and I am extremely grateful that my family and I get to be a part of it.”

Coach Cahak’s coaching background includes stops at Colgate University, Lipscomb University, the University of Tennessee, and Blackman High School.  He also gained the invaluable experience of playing for Coach Jim Boeheim at Syracuse University where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology.  Currently he is pursuing a Master’s Degree in Leadership from the University of Tennessee.  He is married to Cara, and has three children Alee, Annah Cate, and Charli.

CCS is excited to welcome Coach Cahak.  His strong testimony of Jesus as his Savior combined with an excellent background in player development make him a perfect fit to lead the basketball program.  Concord Head of School Ruston Pierce said, “We are so excited to have Coach Cahak leading our program.  He is a phenomenal person with an excellent basketball background.  It’s not every day you get references from Tobias Harris and Cuonzo Martin.  He will be a great fit with our CCS family.”

Concord Christian School is a ministry of First Baptist Concord. CCS is committed to providing a Christian-centered, academically excellent school experience that leads students to connect with Christ, grow in faith and serve with conviction, making a world of difference.
