Reid Yarbrough has played and coached at his Alma Mater White Station and now he gets to take over the Spartan program.
Yarbrough, 37 has been named the new head football coach at White Station after spending the last 12 seasons as a Spartan assistant.
Yarbrough, a 2000 White Station graduate replaces Joe Rocconi who resigned after six seasons to become the head coach at his Alma mater Collierville.
Rocconi spent the last six seasons as the leader of the White Station program where he led the Spartans to a 37-37 overall record as they made the 6A playoffs all six seasons.
White Station finished 3-8 last season as they lost to Houston in the first round of the 6A playoffs.
The Spartans made the Semifinals in 2013 and the Quarterfinal round in 2015 and 2017 as well.
“I’m honored and humbled to be given this opportunity at a place where I’ve spent 16 years of my life as a player and coach. I’ve been fortunate to coach a lot of great kids over the past 12 years, and I am excited to be able to build into the lives of young men we have here,” Yarbrough said.
“Having coached for great men like Major Wright, Devon Rutherford, and Joe Rocconi, I have learned what it takes to build a winning program. We’re going to work diligently to continue to build character, sportsmanship, and a championship culture.”
There are currently 10 programs looking for a head coach they are: Bolton, Cloudland, Coffee County, East Robertson, Hamilton, Kenwood, Manassas, McMinn Central, Morristown East and Seymour
