The search for the new Toombs County High School Head Football coach is underway and drawing a great deal of interest. As we move past the Thanksgiving break and into December, the number of applications continues to increase. According to Superintendent Richard Smith, “We have had a large number of quality applicants from across the state, and even a few from outside of Georgia. They range in experience from head coaches, to coordinators, and assistant head coaches.
Many from quality programs who year in and year out produce good football teams but more importantly develop quality young men.” Toombs County High School Principal Chris Bell said “We are looking for a leader in our next coach. Someone who can guide our football program, but also a person who supports all our programs and is involved in our community.” Applications will continue to be taken through December 10th. At that time, a select number of the best candidates will be asked to interview.
School officials are already in the process of checking references and reaching out to contacts about coaches who have shown an interest in the position. The time table for naming a new coach has not been set. “The most important part of the search is we take our time and find the right person to lead our program,” said Athletic Director Bill Benton.
