“Coach King understands the Trojan culture,” Carrollton principal David Brooks said in a release announcing the hire Monday. “That goes a long way in garnering the support of our athletes, parents and fans within our football tradition.”
At Cartersville, King won state titles in 2015 and 2016. He left to become wide receivers coach at Coastal Carolina. He was on South Florida’s staff as tight ends coach last season.
Carrollton, a Class 6A school, reached the quarterfinals each of the past five seasons under Sean Calhoun, who resigned last week and took the coaching job at Vestavia Hills outside of Birmingham, Ala.
