Pearl River Community College Begins Another Search For A Head Football Coach

For the second time since January Pearl River Community College is back in the hunt for a new football coach. Tucker Peavey stepped down Monday accepting the positions of athletic director and head football coach at Brookhaven High School. Peavey is a Brookhaven native and graduate of Brookhaven High School.

Peavey was named the Wildcats head football coach in January replacing Scott Maxfield who guided Pearl River to 7 wins and 2 losses, developing a high octane offensive machine. He left PRCC to become head coach at Blinn Junior College in Texas.

Pearl River President William Lewis said, "While Coach Peavey's departure is certainly disappointing, the future of our program remains bright. The timing of his resignation makes it imperative that we move in an expeditious manner to solidify our head coaching position. We intend to move as rapidly as possible toward that goal."

Peavey said, "My decision to accept a position at Brookhaven High School in no way reflects negatively on PRCC or any person associated with the college. It is purely a family based decision and an opportunity to go home, that I cannot pass up. I apologize for the timing."

Peavey came to Pearl River from the University of Louisiana-Lafayette where he was the offensive line coach. Prior to his three year stay at UL-L he was assistant head coach and offensive line coach at the University of Louisiana-Monroe.

    As a young baseball player, Bobby Bradley recalls being an energetic, cartwheeling performer in the outfield. Four months from his 21st birthday, Bradley witnessed firsthand just how spirited youth athletes can be at his second annual free baseball camp at Harrison Central High School.
