Bolton is turning to one of their own in hopes of turning around their struggling football program.
C.J. Marshall, a 2011 Bolton graduate has been hired as the new Wildcat coach.
“The new head football coach for Bolton High School is Clarence “CJ” Marshall,” Bolton principal Shanda Gnintedem said.
He replaces Brandon Usery who resigned in January after just one season as Bolton had a tough 2018 season as they finished winless at 0-10 and were outscored 424 (42.4) to 43 (4.3) on the season.
“I am exited to come back home and take on the role as head coach because it’s a dream come true. The relationship I have with the faculty, staff, and students is very family oriented. I’m looking forward to getting to work and rejuvenating the sense of “Wildcat Pride here at Bolton,” Marshall said.
Marshall started his coaching career at Bolton in 2015 and was the run game and special teams coordinator for three seasons.
Last season, Marshall was the passing game and special teams coordinator at Kingsbury.
Marshall, 26, is the fourth head coach at Bolton since 2014 following Patrick Knight (2014-15), Dee Alsbrook (2016-17) and Usery (2018).
There are currently five programs looking for a head coach they are: Dresden, Glencliff, Hardin Valley, Manassas and RePublic
