After spending the last seven years as an assistant at Zion Christian, Brad Lowery has been promoted to head football coach at the small private Maury County school.
“We are ecstatic to have Coach Lowery leading our varsity football program. Coach Lowery has spent his entire adult life spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ in all aspects of his life. Zion Football is one of many means we use to teach our students to love and serve the Lord. Coach Lowery will do a great job of not only teaching football, but more importantly leading our young men to know Jesus Christ,” Zion Christian Athletic Director Tommy Fox said in a school press release.
“Brad has great relationships and rapport with our student body, and I expect our football team to play with great effort and passion under his leadership. Playing four years of NCAA Football at the quarterback position, as well as his experience being our defensive coordinator makes Coach Lowery a seasoned, veteran coach with invaluable insight and experience. We are excited about the direction he will take the program and we are looking forward to Friday nights this Fall.”
Lowery replaces Paul Brenner who resigned in April as head coach and athletic director as he was named Director of Development and the Interim Head of School at Zion.
Besides being the defensive coordinator at Zion Christian the last several years, Lowery has served as Zion head middle school football and baseball coach and baseball varsity assistant as well.
Lowery is also currently the senior pastor at New Prospect Baptist Church and has been on the church staff the last 18 years and holds a bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies from Andersonville Southern Baptist Theological Seminary as well as a Master’s Degree in Theology.
He played quarterback at North Alabama before going to Andersonville Southern Baptist Theological Seminary to get his degree.
Currently there are three schools in Liberty, Glencliff, and Bledsoe County looking for a head coach.
