Mark Hall’s head coaching tenure at Sycamore lasted just nine games.
Hall was told on last Friday by the Sycamore administration that they were going in a different direction with the football program and that did not include him.
Hall confirmed the meeting and that he was let go but would not comment any further.
“We appreciate and thank Coach Mark Hall for his dedication and time with the War Eagle football team. However, after much consideration, we feel it is in the best interest of the Sycamore football program to move in a new direction for the 2021-2022 season. We have begun the process of hiring a new coach for the coming season, and we wish Coach Hall the very best in whatever the future holds for him,” Sycamore Principal Dawn Wenning said.
The War Eagles finished the season at 1-8 but did defeat county rival Cheatham County 34-7 for their lone win.
Before taking the Sycamore job, Hall took the 2019 season off and served as the assistant athletic director and facility/athletic field maintenance coordinator at Rossview high school.
He was an assistant coach in Montgomery County as he was an assistant coach at Rossview in 2015 and became the defensive coordinator there in 2016 and served there for three seasons.
He also served as an assistant coach at private schools West Memphis Christian, Ezell Harding and Middle Tennessee Christian as well as serving as an assistant coach at LaVergne and Christiana Middle school.
Currently 11 schools in Arlington, Blackman, Cherokee, Cumberland Gap, FACS, Franklin, Lakeway Christian, MTCS, Northwest, Sycamore and Tyner are looking for a head coach.
