Former Siegel High School boys basketball coach Ben Dotson is in the ICU at Vanderbilt University Medical Center after a serious crash.
The accident happened last Friday (June 19) at 10:30am on I-840. There aren’t many details into the cause of the accident. Friends close to the former coach say he’s sedated awaiting surgery. That surgery is now expected on Monday, June 29, ten days after the crash.
Dotson, only the second head coach for boys basketball, had much success during his eight-year reign. His teams made four state tournament appearances, including two trips to the final four in 2011 and 2013. His teams also won three district and region championships.
