St. George’s Independent School has announced the resignation of Brent Hill as the head football coach. School officials said Hill’s decision stems from his desire to spend more time with his family and focus on his administrative duties as athletic director.
For the past two years as head football coach, Hill amassed a record of 22-5, winning a state championship in 2011, and advancing to the semi-finals in 2012.
David Carter, the Gryphons’ current defensive coordinator, has assumed the head coach position. Carter also serves as the college recruiting coordinator for the St. George’s athletic department.
“It’s an honor and a privilege to become the head football coach at St. George’s,” Carter said. “I’m very excited to work with such a great group of coaches and young men. I’m confident that this seamless transition will lead to continued growth for the Gryphon football program.”
Prior to coming to St. George’s, Carter was the head football coach at Southern Baptist Educational Center. He has also served as assistant head coach at Lambuth University under current Ole Miss Head Coach Hugh Freeze, and as the assistant coach/defensive coordinator at Evangelical Christian School.
