Mac McCurry named Marion County football coach

Marion County High School has hired Mac McCurry as its next head football coach. McCurry was the defensive coordinator at Signal Mountain this season and before that has coached at Moore County, Marshall County as well as Ripley High School in Mississippi.

McCurry was chosen from more than 70 applicants and takes over for Troy Boeck, who was fired after the worst season in program history. Boeck had coached the Warriors for four years, guiding them to the semifinals and quarterfinals in his first two years before suffering through consecutive losing seasons, including 1-9 this year.

“There were several factors that made us believe Coach McCurry is the right choice,” said Marion assistant principal and athletic director Larry Ziegler. “We need somebody to come in and rebuild our program, and he has a history of having success doing that at three other programs.

“He’s a man of integrity and gave us his word he will be here for more than a year or two, so we know this is not just a stepping-stone job for him. This is my alma mater and I wanted the right man to lead our program and our boys, and we believe Coach McCurry is that guy.”
