Goodpasture has took the interim head coach tag off of Greg Cotten.
Cotton who has been running the day-to-day football operations for the Goodpasture program since Tyler Turner resigned last month has officially been hired as the new head football coach at Goodpasture.
“I am very excited for this opportunity. This school and these kids are very close to my heart and our football program is headed in the right direction after last season and my goal is to keep us on that path,” Cotten said.
Cotten is also the head wrestling coach for the Cougars as well.
Before coming to Goodpasture, Cotten served as the head middle school football coach at Warren County Middle School.
He also served as an assistant football coach at Warren County and White County as well.
Goodpasture Christian School is proud to announce Greg Cotten as the new Head Football Coach for the 2021 season. Coach Cotten has 13 years of experience of coaching football and has a proven record with growing programs. Coach Cotten is a Godly man that will be intentional about leading our young men to the Lord and helping them build a stronger relationship with God while instilling discipline and character. Cotten has most recently served as Offensive line coach and assistant Offensive Coordinator for the Cougars. Coach Cotten has served as the interim coach for the last three weeks and is looking forward to leading the Cougars and continuing the great football tradition at Goodpasture,” Goodpasture President Ricky Perry said.
He replaces Turner who led Goodpasture to a 9-3 record which included a Division II-AA Semifinal trip where they lost to eventual state champion CPA this year.
Turner is now the new head football coach at Jackson Prep (MS).
Currently nine schools in Brainerd, Gatlinburg Pittman, Hillsboro, KIPP Academy, Knoxville Catholic, Manassas, Maplewood, Obion County and Zion Christian are looking for a head coach.
