Chad Broadrick has resigned as the head coach at East Robertson after four seasons at the Cross Plains school and has been named the defensive coordinator at Gallatin.
“I can’t thank the community, East Robertson High School, staff and faculty, and most importantly the players and my coaching staff that have shown myself and my family so much support over the past four years. Thank you to all the players both past and present that allowed myself and the coaching staff to coach them everyday,” Broadrick said.
“They bought in and allowed us to make many improvements to the program and that was all thanks to them. We have great kids here at East Robertson and they deserve nothing but the best. I will always be a fan of East Robertson and the community and will be here for the kids whenever they need me. I am thankful for the many friendships that were made here and hope they continue for a lifetime. I also can’t thank our coaching staff here. They did a tremendous job and made so many sacrifices for the kids and the program. I appreciate everyone that offered support over the past four years.
