Former South Pittsburg head football coach Vic Grider is heading to the Peach State. He has taken an assistant coaching job at Coahulla Creek high school.
It’ll be a reunion for Grider with Coahulla Creek head coach Danny Wilson, who used to work on Grider’s staff at South Pittsburg. According to Wilson, the two have been friends for thirty years. Grider won 233 games at South Pitt along with three state titles, so Wilson is obviously happy to see his friend join him at Coahulla Creek.
Said Wilson:”I think he wanted to step away from head coaching and just breathe a little bit. The ones of us that have been in it awhile understand what kind of toll it takes on you. Vic has a unique energy that kids gravitate to. Being able to feed off that energy and our staff being able to feed off that experience. That’s huge for us.”
