Jason Hoath who took over the Mt. Pleasant program two seasons ago has resigned and will become the new defensive coordinator at Columbia.
Before taking the Mt. Pleasant job, Hoath served on the Columbia staff as an assistant for five seasons.
"It's a great opportunity for me because Columbia is a state title contending program and it's exciting to be a part of that again," Hoath said.
Hoath, 28, replaced Walt Smith two seasons ago and has led the Tigers to back to back Class 2A Playoff Appearances.
The Tigers are coming off a 4-7 record in which they lost to Loretto in the playoffs.
The Lions on the other hand missed the playoffs and finished 4-6 on the year, a year removed from playing in the 5A title game.
Currently there are open jobs at Mt. Pleasant, Mt. Juliet Christian, Northeast, Pickett County, Chattanooga Christian, Hickman County, Whitwell, Middle Tennessee Christian, Bolivar, Fairley, Chattanooga Central and Jackson Christian as schools currently looking for a head coach.
