LC interviewing football coaches this week

Interviews are underway this week as the school system administration and leadership at LCHS strive to find a head football coach. The position was vacated in mid-December when Jeff Sloan stepped down after two seasons leading the team. Sloan remains at LC as assistant principal and athletic director. School superintendent Dr. Jute Wilson reported last week approximately 65 candidates have applied for the position. ‘We are very pleased with the number and quality of applicants,’ Wilson said. There are reports one candidate for the job is Greg Busby, current Trojan defensive coordinator. Busby has eight years head coaching experience, four at Montgomery County and four at Windsor Forest in Savannah. He had two first round playoff appearances at Windsor Forest in 2017 and 2018 and an overall record of 31-51. LC is looking to get back into the high school football limelight from which it has been absent since coach Franklin Stephens took the Trojans to the state title game in 2013, losing 14-7 to Lovett. Stephens was 26-2-1 in two seasons here after inheriting a generational team and developing it well. Stephens left LC for Ware County where he spent five years. He just finished his second season at McEachern. His record since leaving Lamar is 59-25 and his teams have made the playoffs every year though COVID helped get him there with a 4-7 record this past season. Jamie Abrams, a Stephens assistant, took over after Stephens departed and served two years as head coach. He went 15-7-1. Abrams was named head coach at Cedartown last year and took that team to the quarterfinal round of the Class AAAA playoffs this past season, finishing with an 8-3 record. Bryan Love held the top job at LC for one season in 2016. He went 6-5. Since leaving, he has led teams at Woodland for two years and Wheeler for two years, compiling a 14-26 record with one playoff loss. Love was followed by John Flath, who also spent two years leading the Trojans. Flath stepped down after going 5-15 and recommended Sloan as his successor.
