A close friendship and the right timing led Johnnie Frost to a big decision on Monday.

Frost resigned as the head football coach at Community and has been hired as the new offensive coordinator at Moore County under good friend Jeremy Austin.

Frost helped jump start the Community program with a junior varsity schedule back in 2007 and has sustained a little success for the small Unionville program since.

"It is a very bittersweet decision," Frost said. "The community is top notch and I have enjoyed my time at Community but when Jeremy called I felt it was the right time to move on."

Frost and Austin coached together at Cascade starting in 2000 under former head coach Kenny Parker for six years, first with Frost as defensive coordinator and Austin was a defensive assistant.

A couple of years later Frost was named the Champions offensive coordinator and Austin was promoted to defensive coordinator.

Now in Austin's first year as the head coach at Moore County, the two best friends will be reunited.

"We had success at Cascade under coach Parker and since that time, Jeremy and I have always wanted to work together again," Frost said.

Frost tried to hire Austin on a couple of occasions while at Community but it never worked out until now with the roles reversed.

"I tried to hire him a couple of times at Community but the teaching positions never worked now here we are and I'm the assistant and he's the head coach," Frost said. "We are brothers in faith and this season will be really good because it makes it fun and easier to go to work everyday, I'm really excited about the opportunity."

Moore County are coming off a 6-6 year where they were defeated by Class 1A runner up South Pittsburg in the second round.

Community and Colinwood are now both looking for a head coach.
