Hathcock was a teacher and coach at Worth County High for more than 20 years.
He spent four years coaching the Lady Rams basketball team.
The Lady Rams won 20 or more games for three straight seasons, a region title and made two elite eight appearances in the state tournament.
Hathcock stepped down after the 2007 season to teach at Worth Middle School.
He coached middle school basketball this year but found he was ready to get back to the varsity level.He hopes to use his game plan at Worth County to turn around a Berrien High program that has won five state titles.
Tim Hathcock said. "I hope so. We are going to try to run and press and play good defense. Get all the girls involved in it. Really try to have a good attitude and have a little fun."
Tim Hathcock succeeds long time Berrien High coach Keith Powell who retired this year.
