Sweeney resigned from the Owasso helm after eight seasons. He compiled a 110-97 record, which also included a state runner-up finish in 2016.

“I’m excited to meet (Edison’s kids) and start a new adventure,” Sweeney said. “I think it’s gonna be fun. I’ve heard nothing but good things about the program.”

Sweeney teaches chemistry and will be an asset in the classroom, said Gild Cloud, director of athletics for the Tulsa Public Schools.

“He brings a wealth of experience and is a proven winner,” Cloud said. “A tremendous plus for Edison is his teaching ability both on and off the court. We look forward to the coming season with coach Sweeney at the helm."

Sweeney was also head coach at Oologah and compiled a 77-50 record over five seasons (2007-12). With Owasso in 2018, he shared All World coach-of-the-year honors with Booker T. Washington’s Rabu Leyva after guiding the Rams to the gold ball.

He replaces Wan U, who stepped down for health reasons after guiding the Edison program for three seasons. Wan U will remain with the school as a teacher, Cloud said.

Before Oologah, Sweeney spent seven years as a Fort Gibson assistant and considers former Tigers coach Jerry Walker a mentor.

“I learned a lot from that man," he said.
