After five seasons of leading the Bolivar football program, Woodrow Lowe is now heading to Memphis.
Lowe has resigned at Bolivar and will become the defensive coordinator at Division II-AA heavyweight program Lausanne.
“Coach Lowe brings a lot of experience to our defensive staff. He has done a really nice job at Bolivar as a head coach and is a great fit for Lausanne as our new Defensive Coordinator,” Lausanne head coach Kevin Locastro said.
“Coach Lowe is a family man, a man of integrity, and someone who does not shy away from the long hours and the grind. I have known Woodrow for a number of years and I am looking forward to working side by side with him as we continue to grow as a program and help our student athletes develop skills sets that will give them the opportunity to be successful.”
While at Bolivar, Lowe led the Tigers to three consecutive Class 3A playoff appearances (2015-17) and a 25-28 record in those five seasons.
“The Bolivar community welcomed us with open arms, and we are forever grateful. I am proud of the accomplishments and all three of our boys grew up around the school and my oldest is a proud BCHS graduate,” Lowe said. “I’m excited about the direction the football program is headed and that wouldn’t be possible without the hard work of the players (current/past) and coaches, as well as the support of the teachers, staff, parents and community. I am truly thankful for all the support, and I look forward to what the future holds for the Tigers. We will always consider ourselves part of the Bolivar family.”
Lausanne is coming off an 11-1 season in which they lost to eventual Division II-AA state champion CPA in the Semifinals after winning back to back state titles (DII-AA in 2017 and DII-A in 2016).
There are currently 10 programs looking for a head coach they are: Bolivar, Bolton, Cloudland, Ensworth, Hamilton, Haywood, Kenwood, Manassas, Morristown East and Seymour
