Germantown is coming off a 12-1 season that saw them make the Class 6A Quarterfinals.
Tommy Ferrill helped Horn Lake win the 6A state title in Mississippi and is ready to take the Red Devils to the next level.
On Tuesday, Ferrill was named as the new head football at Germantown replacing Chris Smith who was announced as the new Haywood coach two weeks ago.
“We at Germantown High School are thrilled to announce that Coach Tommy Ferrill has been named as our new head football coach,” Germantown principal Barbara Harmon said. We chose him because of his strong work ethic, excellent leadership skills, and his promotion of family values.”
Ferrill comes to Germantown after serving as the Offensive Coordinator the last five seasons for Horn Lake (MS) which ended with an undefeated 15-0 season and the Eagles winning the 6A state title in 2018.
“Coach Ferrill has been an extremely successful assistant football coach at Horn Lake High and he has come to us highly recommended and we know that he will lead our football program in a positive way and will continue with our tradition for winning,” Harmon said.
After playing college football at Mississippi State, Ferrill started his coaching career at East Mississippi Community College serving as an assistant coach, weight room coordinator and Director of Football Operations.
He then left East Mississippi for Biloxi (MS) where he was the Special Teams and Video coordinator before going to Horn Lake in 2014.
Germantown went 23-2 the last two seasons under Smith and the Red Devils also have won back to back region 8-6A titles.
There are currently eight programs looking for a head coach they are: Bolivar, Bolton, Dresden, Glencliff, Hardin Valley, Manassas, RePublic and Seqouyah
