Anderson School District Five anounced Tuesday that Grayson (GA) High School head coach Jeff Herron has been hired to guide the T.L. Hanna High School football team.
Herron replaces Bruce Ollis, who stepped down after three seasons last month.
Herron led Grayson to the Georgia 7A state title this past season, a number six national ranking by MaxPreps, and a 14-1 record with Clemson signee Chase Brice at quarterack. Grayson also produced outgoing Clemson running back Wayne Gallman among other major prospects in recent years.
This past season’s state title was the fifth Herron’s registered at three difference schools in the Peach State.
His overall record is 287-52, which includes a Georgia state record 287-52 with prior stops at Oconee County High School (where he won a state championship) and Camden County High (where he led his teams to three state crowns).
“I am excited for the opportunity to coach at T.L. Hanna High School; a school with great traditions and passionate fans,” Herron said via an Anderson District Five release. “T.L. Hanna is a premier program in South Carolina, and I am looking forward to the amazing facilities that are offered in Anderson Five.”
“Hiring someone the caliber of Coach Herron is not only a benefit for T.L. Hanna, but also the Anderson community,” said district superintendent Tom Wilson. “I want to thank Principal Shawn Tobin and Athletic Director John Cann for their hard work in the coaching search, and want to welcome Coach Herron to the Anderson Five family.”
