Ex-East Coweta coach takes GISA job

Cronic has a career record of 218-108-1, including 148-60 at East Coweta. He was the head coach at Cherokee from 1974 to 1977, followed by four seasons at LaGrange and three seasons at Forsyth Central.

"It will be a different experience for me, a different challenge, but I'm looking forward to it and working with the people at Heritage," he told Tommy Camp for this story in the Newnan Times-Herald.

Cronic's 1983 LaGrange team went 14-1, losing to Tift County in the Class AAAA championship game.

Heritage School has been playing varsity football for four seasons, going 6-5 each of the past two years under head coach Larry Harrison.
