Justin Lanham named new Head Varsity Boys’ Basketball Coach at Lake Creek HS

Montgomery ISD is excited to introduce Justin Lanham as the new Lake Creek High School Head Varsity Boys’ Basketball Coach.

Coach Lanham is coming to Lake Creek after serving as the Varsity Assistant Coach at JJ Pearce HS, a 6A program in Richardson, TX. Before Richardson, he served as the Head Coach at Iowa Park HS (4A) as well as the assistant coach at Denton Braswell HS (5A), Azle HS (5A) and McCullough JH. Lanham is a graduate of Texas A&M and served as the student-assistant coach during his time as an Aggie. 

“Through the interview process, Coach Lanham continued to impress with his experience, his knowledge of the game and his reputation for success with his student-athletes,” MISD Athletic Director Coach Heard said. “He’s going to be a great leader for our Lions and we are excited to welcome him to Montgomery ISD.”

After starting his coaching career in Montgomery County and meeting his wife while working in the Woodlands, they have both always hoped for an opportunity to bring them back to this area to raise a family.

“Montgomery ISD is clearly a very attractive district as it’s such a growing area,” Lanham said. “I’m honored to get to join the Lake Creek family that carries such a great reputation as a school with a winning culture.”

Lanham also shared that the interview process was very impressive, having met some amazing members of the Lake Creek and district staff. Being impressed with the people that he would be working with and for was a great draw in accepting this position.

Lanham will be meeting his Lion student-athletes and parents later this week and will transition to Lake Creek HS at the end of the school year.
