Coffee County Central High School announced their new Head Baseball Coach on Tuesday. His name is Brad Weir. Coach Weir is coming to us from Irwin County in Ocilla Georgia. He is a native of Chattanooga Tennessee but has spent the last 16 years coaching in Georgia, 15 of those years as a Head coach.
His overall record to this point is 232 and 105. Coach Weir was an all American at Cleveland State and then went on to play at Austin Peay and Tennessee Wesleyan.
Coach Weir’s mother still lives in Chattanooga and he has a sister that lives in Nashville. He has been looking for the right opportunity to come along that would get him closer to home. Brad is 43 yrs old, single and lives and breathes baseball.
Athletic Director Richard Skipper said, “We feel very fortunate to welcome Coach Weir to our CCCHS athletic family”. Skipper added, “He is aware of the planning that needs to be put in place and is prepared to hit the ground running”. Irwin County High school has graduation this Friday night and he plans on relocating to Coffee County the week following.
Weir takes over for Brent Whitlock who resigned after two years as head coach.
