Mike Head is excited about his first head coaching job.
Head has been named the new head coach at Antioch replacing Mike Woodward who was fired in late February after improving the Bears from 0-11 to 3-8.
Head’s hiring was confirmed by a press release sent by metro schools on Friday.
“Being named the head coach at Antioch is a dream come true and I want to thank Dr. Wiley, David Kincherlow (Antioch AD) and metro AD Roosevelt Sanders for giving me this opportunity,” Head said.
“I am looking forward to working with the student athletes at Antioch High School and I am eager to meet with the parents, Middle Schools, and our booster program and my goal is to build a championship program. My expectations for our student athletes is to excel in the classroom as well as on the football field.”
He spent the last three seasons as an assistant coach at Stone Memorial where the Panthers complied a 27-7 record which included back to back undefeated regular seasons.
Head has also been an assistant at Beech, Stewart County, Sycamore, Clay County and Todd County Central (KY).
“I want to thank the faculty and staff at Stone Memorial for the last three years and I was very fortunate to have been apart of their family,” Head said.
There are currently two programs looking for a head coach they are: Scotts Hill and Kenwood.
