Stewarts Creek assistant coach Kyle Turnbow has been hired as the new head football coach at The Webb School at Bell Buckle.
“Coach Turnbow will be coming on board to continue to build the Webb football program and will be taking on a new role as Director of Summer Programming,” Webb Athletic Director Scott Dorsett said. “We are excited to have landed such a talent. He brings a wealth of knowledge and ability to build relationships in the programs of our school. I look forward to working with him as we continue to strengthen our vision of the future for Webb.”
Besides being the head football coach, Turnbow will also be the Director of Summer Programs as well.
He replaces Jeff Murphy who resigned after leading the program the last two seasons to open Domenico’s Italian Deli in Murfreesboro in January.
“After listening to the renewed vision for athletics that incoming head of school Ken Cheeseman and athletics director Scott Dorsett have, it became very apparent this was a tremendous opportunity for my family and me,” Turnbow said.
“The Webb School has a tradition of excellence dating back to 1870, and I expect nothing but the same going forward for this football program. Webb provides an education that is second to none, and now athletics will also follow that lead for the surrounding counties, nation, and world.”
Turnbow, a 2001 Shelbyville graduate played at MTSU under former coach Andy McCollum and got his first coaching job at his Alma mater Shelbyville in 2006.
He was the offensive and defensive coach and was named the Defensive coordinator in 2013.
Turnbow then was the defensive coordinator at LaVergne for two seasons (2015-16) before going to Middle Tennessee Christian in 2017 to serve as the offensive line coach and be the head of strength and conditioning for the school.
He then accepted the offensive line coaching job at Stewarts Creek last season.
Webb school made the jump in 2019 to 11 man football after starting their program in 2011 playing eight man football.
The Feet finished their inaugural year in Division II-A with a 1-7 record and Murphy led Webb to an 8-2 record in 2018 as they finished runner up in the Middle Tennessee Athletic Conference.
Currently there are five schools looking for a head coach they are: Austin East, Fayette Ware, Sycamore, Whites Creek and Whitwell
