Clear Creek has hired Scott Haebe, the longtime coach at Evergreen, to take over its boys basketball program.

Golddiggers athletic director David Schuessler announced the hire on Thursday night.

Haebe had been the head boys basketball coach at Evergreen for the past 26 seasons.

"Coach Haebe will bring his 26 years of head-coaching experience and a very successful philosophy with him to take on the challenge of building the same type of program that he built at Evergreen High School over the past 26 years," Schuessler said.

Haebe will move from the Class 4A Cougars to the 2A Golddiggers, taking over for Jon Walker, whose team was 15-8 in his lone season last year. Clear Creek lost in the regional round last season.

Evergreen finished 19-6 last season, advancing to the 4A Sweet 16. They made the Great 8 in 2017, and have made the tournament every year since 2012 under Haebe. That includes five trips to at least the Sweet 16.
