Carter hires Jones as boys basketball coach

Carter hired former Rialto and Riverside North boys basketball coach Anthony Jones earlier this month for its open boys basketball position. Jones, a health teacher, was an assistant at Eisenhower in 2001-03 before coaching the Knights from 2004-07 and North from 2008-11.

Jones, who led North to an 19-11 record and a berth in the CIF-SS Division 2A quarterfinals this past season, will take over a Lion program that went 4-20 overall last season with a 3-11 record in the San Andreas League. Carter has never made the playoffs in its seven-year history.
