Houston County, Ridgeland and Greene County hired football coaches Tuesday, and North Hall and Meadowcreek now have openings.
Houston County hired Jeremy Edwards, who was Warner Robins’ offensive coordinator the past three seasons, during which the Demons were 40-4 with two state titles. The 2021 team averaged a school-record 47.7 points per game.
Ridgeland hired alumnus Craig Pritchett, who had been head coach at Brevard of North Carolina the past seven seasons, going 47-34. Pritchett had been on Ridgeland’s staff from 2005 to 2014.
Greene County hired Terrance Banks, who took over as Meadowcreek’s coach in midseason this year when Jason Carrera became Central Gwinnett’s athletic director. Banks also has been a head coach at Tri-Cities and Newton. The Meadowcreek job is open.
North Hall’s David Bishop resigned Tuesday after eight seasons as head coach, all ending in playoff berths. Bishop has been on North Hall’s staff since 2001.
