Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School is excited to announce Cabral Huff as the new head varsity boys basketball coach. Coach Huff has spent the last three seasons at Duluth High, where he led the Wildcats to three consecutive state tournament bids including two Sweet 16 appearances.
Before his time at Duluth, he coached at the collegiate level at both Georgia Southern and Alcorn State.
Coach Huff also has private school experience – before his collegiate tenures he coached at nearby St. Francis, where he led the Knights to deep postseason runs that included a 2014 Class A – Private state championship.
An educator, mentor and basketball leader, he is well known for developing student-athletes as well as “building men.”
“I am excited and blessed about the opportunity and challenge I have received,” Coach Huff said. “It is indeed a privilege and honor to lead a program like the one we have here. Anyone can build a team, but it is my job to build a program that helps mold young men through basketball. We will create a standard of excellence on and off the floor through execution and accountability that helps our players leave at legacy here at HIES and the community. Again, I look forward to starting this process, this challenge, this journey with all of you.”
Coach Huff will be a teacher as well as work in gameday operations in the athletic department.
"We are excited to welcome Cabral to Holy Innocents'," Tony Watkins, athletic director, said. "His experiences as an educator, a championship basketball coach and a mentor of young men make him an idea fit here at HIES. Cabral will implement the Holy Innocents' mission and continue to build on what is already a good basketball program."
Coach Huff takes over from Adrian Collins, who served as Golden Bear leader for three seasons, where he led HIES to Elite 8, Final Four and Sweet 16 finishes.
