Will Wolfe has resigned at Brighton and will take over the Hernando High School (MS) football program.

For Wolfe it was one of the toughest decisions of his coaching career but its a chance for Wolfe and his wife the chance to go back home.

"Everyone at Brighton from the administration, fellow teachers, parents and students have been wonderful in my time here," Wolfe said.

"They really support you in everything you do and I feel like I am going from a great family to another great family."

Wolfe and his wife are both from North Mississippi just down the road from Hernando.

"It's been a great run at Brighton and we got a lot of good things done in the program but for me and my family, it's a chance to go back home." Wolfe said.

Wolfe posted an impressive 62-26 record at Brighton in his eight years as head coach.

The Cardinals have made the Class 6A playoffs seven of the last eight years including seven straight.

They are coming off an 8-3 record in 2013.

At Hernando, Wolfe will replace Anthony Jenkins who posted a 158-108 record in 26 years as head coach at Hernando.

Jenkins resigned last month and will start his new job as the Desoto County School Athletic Director in March.

Under Jenkins, The Tigers made eight 6A playoff appearances and are in the same region as heavyweights South Panola, Olive Branch and 2013 6A runner up Tupelo.

South Panola has won nine titles combined in Class 5A and 6A and Olive Branch won the 6A title in 2011.

Hernando is coming off a 3-8 season in 2013.

Currently there are open jobs at Brighton, Mt. Juliet Christian, York, Northeast, Pickett County, Chattanooga Christian, Hickman County, Hixson, Whitwell, Middle Tennessee Christian, Bolivar, Fairley, Chattanooga Central and Jackson Christian as schools currently looking for a head coach.
