Jeff Holt is an excitable guy and full of energy.
That enthusiasm is one of the big reasons, Holt with little coaching experience has been named the new head football coach at Pickett County.
"Coach Holt is a very enthusiastic guy and energetic and that's what the program needs," Pickett County School Superintendent Diane Elder said.
"We are hopeful that he can turn the program around and we are excited about next season."
Since moving to Pickett County five years ago, Holt has worked mainly at the pee wee and youth levels before joining the Pickett County program.
Holt has been an assistant coach at Pickett County for the last year and a half and is excited about the possibilities of the Bobcat program.
"I'm from Cincinnati, Ohio and grown up with big time football and I want to get everyone excited here in Byrdstown," Holt said.
"The community wants the football program to be successful, so with that support we can be make it happen."
"It gives me goosebumps just thinking about how successful a small community football can be."
Holt replaces OB Caudle who resigned in January after leading the program for the last three years to a 1-29 record.
The Bobcats are coming off a 1-9 season and are 2-48 in the last five seasons.
Currently there are open jobs at Mt. Pleasant, Mt. Juliet Christian, Northeast, Chattanooga Christian, Middle Tennessee Christian, Bolivar, Fairley, Chattanooga Central and Jackson Christian as schools currently looking for a head coach.
