After four seasons at Cleveland, Scott Cummings has resigned and has been announced as the new head football coach at Knoxville Halls.
He replaces Jeremy Bosken who led the Red Devils to the Class 5A playoffs and a 5-6 record last season.
Bosken who coached under Cummings at Cleveland in 2017, recently was hired as the new football coach at Boyd Buchanan.
While at Cleveland, Cummings posted a 21-21 record and led the Blue Raiders to three playoff appearances (2015 in 5A and 2017 and 2018 in 6A).
“First and foremost, I want to thank the Cleveland administration in Miss O’Bryan (principal) and Dr. Dyer (Superintendent) in all their support of the Cleveland football program,” Cummings said. “At the end of the day, Knoxville is home and my family and I are ready to get back home.”
The Blue Raiders lost in the first round each time to Farragut.
Before coming to Cleveland, Cummings led Knoxville West to the 5A State title in 2014 and his overall coaching record is 125-79.
“We are thrilled to welcome Coach Cummings and his family to Halls. Coach Cummings has proven himself to be a top tier coach. The hiring team decided unanimously that he is the man we need heading the program to take it to the next level,” Knoxville Halls athletic director Meagan Booth said.
There are currently 17 programs looking for a head coach they are: Antioch, Bartlett, Bledsoe County, Cleveland, Collierville, East Hamilton, East Hickman, Fayetteville, Hillcrest, Hillwood, Hunters Lane, Lipscomb Academy, Melrose, Northpoint Christian, Northview Academy, Stewarts Creek, Tellico Plains, and Westview
