Blair Harrison, the former coach in Brookstone of Columbus who left for a job in Tennessee last year, is back in Georgia.
The Tennessee native has been hired as head coach at Towns County in the north Georgia mountains.
“All their schools are on the same campus,’’ Harrison told the Knoxville News. I’ll get to work with my wife. My kids are going to be on the same campus. The facilities are wonderful. They’ve just never won in football. They think they can, and they’re going to give it one last shot.”
Harrison was head coach at Kingston and led the to a 7-5 finish in his only season. Harrison spent nine seasons at Brookstone and had a record of 73-29. His team advanced to the Class A quarterfinals in 2007.
Towns County has achieved only one winning season (2008) since resuming varsity football in 1975. The school has not played a region schedule since 2005 or won a region game since 1999.
