Michael Mosby will finally get a chance to run a high school football program after spending the last seven seasons coaching middle school football.
Mosby has been hired to lead the Oakhaven program and will replace Edward Kuykendoll who was hired as the new head coach at Sheffield.
New Oakhaven principal Jocelyn Mosby confirmed Mosby’s hiring.
Michael Mosby, 36, spent last season as the offensive coordinator at Chickasaw Middle school and the Chieftains posted a 9-1 record and beat Bellevue for the City Championship.
Before coming to Chickasaw, he spent five total seasons at Geeter Middle school with the last three seasons as the head coach and got his middle school coaching start by coaching one season at Cordova Middle.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to coach high school football, Mosby said. As we know high school football here is a big deal and I’m looking forward to the challenges and process of making a big turn around for the Oakhaven football program.”
Mosby will have plenty of work to do as the Hawks are coming off a 3-7 season and he will try to get them back to the playoffs which they haven’t made since 2016.
The last winning season for Oakhaven came back in 2010 as the Hawks went 8-3 and made the 3A playoffs.
There are currently five programs looking for a head coach they are: Dresden, Glencliff, Hardin Valley, Midway and RePublic
