Antwone Moore couldn’t pass up the chance to come home.
Moore, a 1997 graduate of Hamilton high school has been hired to lead the Wildcat football program.
“I am glad to be back home, it’s going to be a lot of work in progress but I have a great coaching staff and we are ready to put in the work,” Moore said.
Moore and his staff will have plenty of work to do as the Wildcats enter the 2019 season with a 20 game losing streak which is the third longest in the state heading into the season (White County- 23, Hixson- 21).
The last winning season and playoff appearance for Hamilton came back in 2012 as they upset 2011 5A state champion Henry County in the first round of the 5A playoffs before losing to Jackson North side in the second round as they finished the season at 7-5.
The Hamilton job will be Moore’s second head coaching assignment as he was the head coach at Memphis Northside and led them to the Class 1A playoffs in 2015, that season was the last football season for the school as they closed their doors in 2016.
After Northside closed, Moore was an assistant coach at Cordova in 2016, the defensive coordinator at Westwood in 2017 and spent last season on the Kirby staff.
“We are exciting that Coach Moore is coming home to led the Hamilton program,” Hamilton principal James Bacchus said.
There are currently seven programs looking for a head coach they are: Bolivar, Bolton, Cloudland, Ensworth, Haywood, Manassas and Morristown East
