The Keith Etheredge era has begun at Auburn High School. Auburn school officials held a school board meeting Friday afternoon to confirm the hire.
Coach Etheredge brings 15-years of coaching experience a resume that’s stacked with winning. He’s won 150 games and claimed 5 State Championships during his time on the sidelines.
He arrives on The Plains after a two year stint with Oxford High. In his first year at Oxford, the Yellow Jackets posted at 14-1 overall record and won the Class 6A State Championship in an exciting 14-13 win over Spanish Fort. Auburn High Athletic Director Dan Norton explained why Etheredge was the best man for the job.
“Well I mean his resume is unbelievable in terms of just a football coach. Then sitting down with him and listen to him talking about the relationships that he’s made over the years with students and coaches and the school community. And the community in general is just a really big thing,” said Norton.
