Last June Ryan Bolinger was hired to lead the Concord Christian’s middle school football program.
Now Bolinger has been hired to be the new football leader at Seqouyah high school replacing Bobby White who recently resigned after four seasons as head coach.
“I am really excited to become the head coach at Sequoyah where I feel like the school and community are very committed, and where I have support from the administration,” Bolinger said.
“I think there is a lot of potential to have success here and build a competitive program. My wife Heather has been a nurse practitioner at Chota Community Health Services in Madisonville for the past six years and has really enjoyed the people in Monroe County and we are excited to serve and invest in the same community.”
Seqouyah high school is having a free community cookout to meet Coach Bolinger next Thursday, May 30 at the school Cafeteria starting at 6:30 (EST).
In White’s four seasons as head coach, the Chiefs made the Class 4A playoffs in 2017 and barely missed the playoffs last season as they finished 5-5 and his overall record there was 17-25.
Bolinger was hired as the Concord Christian quarterback and defensive line coach in 2017 and then was promoted to head coach in 2018.
Before being hired at Concord Christian, Bolinger was the quarterback and defensive backs coach at Grace Christian Academy-Knoxville in 2016.
He also was a quarterback analyst for the Cleveland Browns for two seasons (2013-14) and was a graduate assistant at the University of Tennessee under former coach Phillip Fulmer in 2007 and 2008.
He then transitioned to another position as he was the assistant to then head coach Lane Kiffin in 2009.
There are currently seven programs looking for a head coach they are: Bolivar, Bolton, Dresden, Glencliff, Hardin Valley, Manassas and RePublic
