and high schools are looking for new head football coaches.
Both Kennesaw schools are searching for replacements.
The Hoyas and Mustangs have struggled in recent years as new schools to the south and to the north have thinned the football talent pool. Both the Hawks and the Buccaneers had undefeated regular seasons in football this year.
Harrison was 3-7 and 2-5 in Region 4-AAAAA this season. The Hoyas lost their final two games, to to and to , to miss the state playoffs.
Hines went 22-21 in four seasons at the school; his only winning season was his first, 2008, when the Hoyas were 9-3. He still is scheduled to coach the National team in the Cobb County Senior Bowl on Dec. 17 at McEachern.
Fellow 4-AAAAA school Kennesaw Mountain went 0-10 this year. Seven of the losses were by 17 or more points. One of the closer losses was a against Harrison on Oct. 21.
The only win in McGehee’s two-year, 1-19 run with the Mustangs came Oct. 8, 2010, when Kennesaw Mountain beat , 25-3.
Kennesaw Mountain also won only once in 2009, the final year for McGehee’s predecessor, Scott Jones; that win came against Hines’ Harrison team, 17-14.
