Former Ooltewah High School head coach Mac Bryan was introduced as the next leader of the Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe football program Friday afternoon.
Bryan, who has worked at various levels of the sport in a career that began in the early 1980s, replaces Bo Campbell, who resigned last month after going 19-51 in seven seasons.
Bryan has been the head coach at Avery High School in North Carolina the past four years, compiling a 10-29 record before resigning in December. Before that he led Ooltewah to a 45-16 record in four seasons, taking the Owls to the TSSAA playoffs each year and winning three region titles. He has an overall record of 161-142-1 as a high school coach.
Bryan's hiring has been approved by the Catoosa County Board of Education, and the veteran coach met his players Friday.
