Kendrick Wade has always had a dream of coaching college football and he’s now off to chase that dream as he has resigned after three successful seasons at Memphis Middle College High school.
Wade started the program from the ground up in 2014 as the Bulldogs went 4-2 as they played a six game junior varsity schedule.
Middle College just finished its second year of varsity competition as they made the Class 1A playoffs both seasons going 6-4 in 2015 and 6-5 this season.
“ I enjoyed starting the football program at Middle College, I poured every ounce of who I am and what I had into the program, but it truly took a team effort to make it happen because I couldn’t do it by myself,” Wade said.
“I was surrounded by so many great people that help build the program to where it is today I couldn’t ask for a better principal than Mrs. Generette Walker to work for, she’s the one the really allowed the program to flourish, I was also surrounded by the best parents in the world but now the time has come for me to move on and continue to chase my dreams as I’ve always wanted to coach on the collegiate level and I feel now is the time for me to make that move,” Wade continued.
The search for the Bulldogs second coach in school history will begin immediately according to athletic director Reed Willis.
“Coach Wade will be moving on to be a position coach at the collegiate level, we appreciate all his time and hard work he put toward the program and we will begin looking for our next coach to take us into the future,” Willis said.
There are currently 14 programs looking for a head coach they are: Middle College, Ravenwood, Hillsboro, Whitwell, Clarksville Northeast, Rossview, Creek wood, Ripley, Grace Christian Academy, Glencliff, Carter, ECS, Brainerd and Loretto.
