The coaching carousel in the Tri-Nine Conference continues.

Crocker, from Wakefield, Va., played college football at the University of the North Carolina. He has also served as an assistant coach at Cary and Chapel Hill.
Panther Creek posted an 8-4 record last season, one year after going 13-2 and advancing to the NCHSAA 4-AA Eastern Regional Final.
