Panama boys basketball coach going to 'retire'; 'Czar of Coaching' will be assistant boys basketball coach at Greenwood (Ark.) High School

July 20, 2012

PANAMA — Some decisions are not easy to make. Just ask Panama High School Boys Basketball Coach Greg Nichols, a.k.a., “The Czar of Coaching.”
After quite a period of time, Nichols made the decision on Wednesday to retire after 34 years of coaching, 29 of which were spent in Oklahoma — including stops at Panama and Heavener.
“It was an extremely hard decision to make,” Nichols said. “You hate to leave players you've gotten close to. That was the hard part. It was a tough decision. I kicked it around for a long time before I finally decided to do it (on Wednesday).”
