After spending the last two seasons as the Lavergne offensive coordinator, Mike Woodward will now take over the Wolverine football program.
“I am so excited for the opportunity to take over a program that has a good group of kids and coaches to work with,” Woodward said.
“I am thrilled to take over a program that I have familiarity with and I know what the players can do and how well the coaches interact with the kids.”
He takes over for Stanton Stevens who resigned last Friday and will be an athletic director at a school in North Carolina.
Stevens led the Wolverines to an overall record of 35-69 and Lavergne made the playoffs three times during his tenure (made 6A playoffs in 2014 and 2017, 5A in 2015).
The Wolverines are coming off a 4-6 season as they missed the playoffs.
Woodward has head coaching experience as he had two coaching tenures at Antioch (2006-12 and 2016) as he led the Bears to a 41-47 overall record and six total playoff appearances (2006, 2007, 2008, 2011, 2012 and 2016) with first round playoff wins over Dickson County in back to back years in 2006 and 2007.
He left Antioch for a two year head coaching stint at Brentwood starting in 2013 and he was 5-15 during that two year tenure.
Woodward served as the offensive coordinator at Nashville Overton in 2015 before coming back to Antioch.
Woodward started his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Austin Peay before going to Centennial where he served as Offensive Coordinator from 1999 to 2001.
He then went to Ravenwood in 2002 and was the Offensive Coordinator for the Raptors when they won the 2005 5A state title.
Currently there are six schools looking for a head coach they are: Fayette Ware, Sycamore, Whites Creek, The Webb School, West Greene and Whitwell
