Columbus, GA – Wednesday afternoon Spencer High School concluded their search for a new head football coach, and they hired current wrestling coach Robert Sanders to the big job. While he’s coaching wrestling right now, head coach Sanders has plenty of experience on a football sideline. Prior to his wrestling coaching career, he was a defensive coordinator, special teams coach and an offesnive coordinator for the Greenwave.
He also has a family connection to the Heritage Bowl too, since his father Pete Sanders was the first football head coach for the Carver Tigers.
In this interview, WRBL Sports Director Rex Castillo goes one-on-one with head coach Sanders about what this job means to him, the opportunity to play against his father’s former team and how he plans to shape Greenwave football in the future.
