Former Olympic High football coach Barry Shuford is the new coach at East Mecklenburg, Eagles athletics director Ec Little told the Observer.
Shuford coached at Olympic since 2007. His 2013 team was 7-5. After going 4-7 in his first season, Shuford’s next six teams produced no losing seasons.
Before coaching at Olympic, Shuford was at Parkwood High (2003-06), Butler (1997-02), Garinger (1992-95) and Bessemer City (1989-91).
His career record is 142-137.
East Mecklenburg was 1-10 last season under coach Chris Williams. In two seasons, Williams was 3-19. Prior to Williams, Jeremy Buck was 2-20 in two seasons.
The Eagles have not had a winning season since Greg Hill posted back-to-back winning seasons in 2008 and 2009.
