CAMPBELL, Ohio (WKBN) – Butch Jennings has been named the new head football coach at Campbell Memorial High School.
His hire was officially approved by the board of education during its meeting Tuesday night.
Jennings brings a combined 12 years of coaching experience from various levels to the Red Devils’ program. He spent the 2016 season as head coach at Valley Christian.
He was previously named a two-time Virginia Independent High School State Coach of the Year during the 2012 and 2013 seasons after winning two back-to-back state championships.
Coach Jennings is the older brother of Rashad Jennings, recently retired from the New York Giants.
“I am elated to hear that my brother has been named the Campbell Memorial High School head football coach. Moreover, I am very excited for the Campbell community at large, knowing that Butch’s vision will truly impact all those involved,” Rashad Jennings said.
“I wish to express my appreciation to the administration and board members for their vote of confidence, trusting me to lead the Campbell Memorial High School football program to the next level,” Butch Jennings said.
“Coach Jennings brings with him a strong background of player development and engagement, with many of his former players transitioning to the collegiate level,” said Athletic Director Ron Aulet.
“The team is always more important than the individual. Athletes not only learn to love the game, but they also learn the importance of hardwork, discipline and resilience. Coach Jennings will be a great addition to our Campbell community,” Superintendent Matthew Bowen said.
Jennings replaces Ed Rozum, who stepped down from the position in December.
