Football coaching changes: Peach County’s Campbell takes Westfield job; Seckinger coach steps down

Peach’s Campbell takes Westfield job

Chad Campbell, who retired as Peach County’s coach after 30 seasons at the school, was announced Wednesday as coach of Westfield, a GIAA school in Perry.

Westfield was 5-6 this season and lost in the Class 4A quarterfinals. The school won state titles in 2014 and 2015.

Campbell’s record was 168-38 with 10 region titles and one state championship in 16 seasons as Peach County’s head coach.

Seckinger coach steps down

Aaron Hill has resigned after one season at Seckinger, which opened this year in Gwinnett County. Hill announced his decision on social media.

“I had to make one of the hardest decisions of my life yesterday,” Hill stated. “After meeting with our administration, it became clear that our vision for the future of the program did not align.”

Seckinger was 0-7 against a non-region schedule. Hill was on Grayson’s staff during its 2020 state championship season.

Briefly …

Chattahoochee County coach Ryan McKenzie won’t return next season. The Panthers were 5-6 in his only season.
