Montgomery Bell Academy named Marty Euverard its new head football coach, the school announced Friday morning.
He replaces Daniel McGugin, who resigned last month after recent controversy that erupted at the west side prep school over financial assistance various MBA parents provided to a student athlete's family in 2008.
In an email announcing the move, headmaster Bradford Gioia said Euverard “Fits our profile for a great man, teacher, and coach,” and “His care for young people, the classroom and football will bring excitement to the MBA campus and community.”
Euverard has an extensive history in Middle Tennessee, including six years at Oakland High School in Murfreesboro, where he won the 1998 Class 5A state championship.
Last January he was named head coach at Battle Ground Academy. He also coached at Cheatham County, Cherokee, Ryan and Clarksville high schools.
He is a graduate of Middle Tennessee State University.
