Brad Waggoner is heading back home to Georgia.
Waggoner who has served as the head coach at Trousdale County for the last two seasons has resigned and has been named the new head football coach and Director of Football Operations at Elbert County (GA).
He will replace Sid Fritts who retired after leading Elbert County for nine seasons posting a 75-30 in that time.
The Blue Devils finished 7-4 last season, losing in the first round of the Class AA playoffs.
“I am very appreciative of Clint Satterfield giving me the opportunity to have coached the last two years at Trousdale County,” Waggoner said. I have learned a lot from him and he’s made me a better coach and leader. He’s not only been a boss but one I consider a friend for life.”
Waggoner led Trousdale County to a 19-8 record in his two seasons in Hartsville, two Class 2A playoff appearances which included a Class 2A runner up finish this season as the Yellow Jackets finished 11-4 losing to Peabody in the state title game.
