Cole Peeples’ head coaching tenure at John Overton lasted two seasons.
After two seasons and a 2-12 overall record, Peeples has resigned as head football coach for the Bobcat program.
“Coach Peeples chose to step down. He is a great guy, and we talked a long time yesterday about his decision and I respect his reasons and totally back him 100 percent,” Overton Athletic Director Kim Gaines said.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Metro Nashville public schools got a late start to the 2020 football season and Overton only played four games finishing 1-3 as they beat Antioch 55-30 for their lone win.
In his first season at Overton, the Bobcats lost their first seven games of the year before defeating Antioch for their only win as they finished the year with a 1-9 record.
Before taking the reins of the Bobcat program, Peeples coached the Overton offensive line for two seasons.
Peeples played collegiately at Georgia Southern for three seasons before and spent two seasons (2015 and 2016) as graduate assistant at Cumberland before coming to Overton.
Currently nine schools in Brainerd, Cumberland Gap, Grainger, Grundy County, Jackson Central Merry, John Overton, Northwest, Ooltewah and South Pittsburg are looking for a head coach.
