Hiett steps down as MJ girls' coach

Feb. 28—MT. JULIET — Joseph Hiett has resigned as Mt. Juliet's girls' basketball coach after three years on the job.

Hiett came to MJHS in 2020 as an assistant to Jennifer Wilson. When Wilson was let go on the eve of preseason practice in '21, Hiett was promoted to the head coach's seat.

Leading a proud program which was gutted by the 2020 opening of Green Hill, Hiett's Lady Bears went 7-21 this past season and 21-65 during his three years.
