M.L. King has hired away Avondale’s Michael Carson as its new football coach.
Carson is a former assistant at M.L. King, and has been the head coach the last two years at Avondale.
Carson went 7-14 at Avondale, leading the Blue Devils to a 6-5 record last year, including the DeKalb County’s school first playoff appearance since 1989.
Carson will begin teaching at M.L. King in August, but will oversee spring practice for the Lions. At M.L. King, Carson replaced Corey Jarvis, who was hired by Duluth High.
