Arcentae Broome will lead his third Metro Nashville football program this fall.
Broome who has led the Maplewood program for the last 11 years has been named the new head coach at John Overton.
“John Overton High School is excited to announce the acquisition of Arcentae Broome as Head Football Coach. Coach Broome has a long and successful history in Metro Schools and is a respected leader throughout the Middle Tennessee region,” Overton Principal Jill Pittman said.
“Coach Broome joins a stable and dedicated coaching staff at Overton and will join the Bobcat faculty for the 2021-22 school year and beyond. He will kick off the spring training season immediately.”
He replaces Cole Peeples who resigned earlier in the month after two seasons and a 2-12 overall record as the Bobcats finished 1-3 this season.
Broome had success at Maplewood leading the Panthers to a 73-55 record and nine Class 4A playoff appearances (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019).
The Panthers best season was in 2011 as they finished 11-4 and was runner up to Greeneville in 2011.
Before going to Maplewood, he led the McGavock program for six years (2004-2009) and a 31-32 overall record and three playoff appearances (2004 and 2005 in 5A and 2009 in 6A).
Currently 10 schools in Brainerd, Cloudland, Cumberland Gap, Hunters Lane, KIPP Academy, Maplewood, Northwest, Obion County, South Pittsburg and Zion Christian are looking for a head coach.
