FISHERS, Ind. (WISH) — Garrett Winegar is on the move.

After four seasons at Warren Central High School, including taking over as the Warriors Head Coach this past season, Winegar officially was approved as the Fishers Tigers Boys Basketball Head Coach on Wednesday evening.

Winegar and his wife recently welcomed their first child and live in the Fishers area.

Winegar shared this statement with WISH-TV following the decision:

“My wife and I are extremely excited to join the Tigers family and begin this journey leading the Fishers basketball program. I loved my four years at Warren Central. What we did there and the memories will always be something I treasure. 94-12 in four years is a heck of a run. However, with the birth of my son, the opportunity to coach where we live and be there for him more as he grows older was one my family and I couldn’t pass up. Coach Moore is leaving behind a great foundation at Fishers, and I look forward to building on it. I believe Fishers basketball is on the cusp of something special, and I look forward to giving everything I have to build Fishers into a top Basketball program that consistently competes for championships.”

The move comes after Winegar posted an 18-6 record in 2019-2020 with the Warriors after taking over for Criss Beyers who departed after the 2018-2019 season for Franklin Central.

This past postseason, the Warriors fell to 4A state title front runner Lawrence North in the sectional final at Lawrence Central.

Fishers posted an 18-7 record last season under Head Coach Matt Moore, who departed for the same position at Warsaw High School earlier this off-season.
