A month after Woodrow Lowe left Bolivar to become the new defensive coordinator at Lausanne, Bolivar has a new football leader and they didn’t have to go far to find him.
Montrell Craft, the Bolivar defensive coordinator last season has been promoted to lead the Tiger football program.
He replaces Lowe who led the Tigers to three consecutive Class 3A playoff appearances (2015-17) and a 25-28 record in five seasons at the helm.
The Tigers are coming off a 2-8 season and missed the 3A playoffs in 2018.
“I’m thankful for the opportunity to be the next head coach at Bolivar Central. It’s been a breath of fresh air while being here at Bolivar. The coaching staff, the administration, the community, and most importantly our student athletes have welcomed me with open arms from day one. It’s a blessing to be in this position and I’m excited to get started,” Craft said.
Before coming over to coordinate the Tiger defense last season, Craft spent five seasons as an assistant coach at Bartlett (2013-17) and started his coaching career at Craigmont in 2011.
There are currently six programs looking for a head coach they are: Bolton, Dresden, Glencliff, Hardin Valley, Manassas and RePublic
