Yellow Jacket Head Coach Nick Bryant stepped down on Friday turning in his resignation. Bryant led the Jackets for six years compiling a record of 31-35. While his teams did make the playoffs each of his six seasons he was 0-6 in the postseason and was outscored by an average of 46.6 to 18.3.
Director of Schools Dr. David Dickerson was quoted Friday that the search for a new coach would begin immediately.
“We will start the process of finding a new coach immediately and hopefully we can get a new coach by spring practice,” said Dickerson.
Under the new TSSAA alignment the Yellow Jackets will compete in a new region beginning in 2015. Region 4-3A will consist of Cannon County, DeKalb County, Sequatchie County, Smith County, Upperman, York Institute and Grundy.
Besides those region games the Yellow Jackets will play Whitwell, South Pittsburg, Marion County and Watertown.
