Doug Greene, most recently an assistant at Carson-Newman, has accepted the position as head football coach at Rhea County High.
“Doug’s references were outstanding,” Rhea County assistant principal and athletic director Micah Ruling said. “When you have worked for Ken Sparks, Gary Rankin and Benny Monroe you have been with some outstanding coaches. When you talk about football in Tennessee those are three names that are thrown around on a regular basis and on a high level.”
