Former Buckeye guard Ron Lewis is now a head basketball coach at the high school level.

Lewis, who was an assistant on staff at Worthington Kilbourne this past season, was named head coach of the program Tuesday, according to a report from The Columbus Dispatch.

A native of Columbus, Lewis played at Brookhaven High School before spending the first two years of his collegiate tenure at Bowling Green. Lewis then transferred to Ohio State ahead of the 2004-05 season as the first addition to the program under the leadership of Thad Matta.

Lewis spent three years at Ohio State, sitting out his first as a transfer before starting in 44 of his 71 appearances in scarlet and gray in 2005-06 and 2006-07. Lewis started all but one game during his final season with the Buckeyes, in which he averaged 12.7 points per game and helped lead Ohio State to a Big Ten Championship and the national championship game in the NCAA Tournament.

After college, Lewis spent 14 seasons playing professionally overseas before retiring in 2021 after a stint with France's SLUC Nancy Basket.

At Worthington Kilbourne, Lewis takes over for longtime head coach Tom Souder, who retired after a 10-12 season at the helm of the Wolves' program this past year.
