MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- Middle Tennessee Christian School is looking for a new football and baseball coach.
Brian Stewart told students Thursday that he has accepted a position at Memphis Briarcrest as head football coach, according to WGNS Radio. He returns to Briarcrest where he was football coach before going to Jackson Christian.
The Cougar football team made the playoffs this year, finishing 6-5. Stewart was also the MTCS baseball coach for the past two years, leading the Cougars to the District 9A Championship last season.
The Cougars were also a region semifinalist, finishing the season 25-8-1.
Stewart's departure, after three years at MTCS, leaves the school looking for its fifth football coach in the nine years it has had a program.
Head basketball coach Jason Piercey, who was co-athletic director, will take over those responsibilities, officials said.
President Phil Ellenburg and Secondary School Principal Todd Miller will immediately begin the search for a new football and baseball coach.
