Chattanooga Christian School has named longtime college assistant Rob Spence as its new head football coach. Spence was the quarterbacks coach at Rutgers University the last two years and has previously worked as an offensive coordinator at Clemson and Syracuse.

"We are extremely excited to have someone with Coach Spence's experience joining our faculty and coaching staff," CCS principal Bryant Black said. "He's been heavily involved in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and discipling young men so we believe this is a great fit."

Spence has been a career college offensive assistant, having also spent time at Temple, Toledo, Bethune-Cookman, Louisiana Tech, Maryland, Hofstra, Holy Cross and Iona College.

"I am thrilled at both the opportunity and challenge to serve the community at CCS," Spence said in a press release. "It is exciting to continue to build a program that is committed to challenging young men to grow, not only in the field of competition, but in every facet of mind, body and spirit."
