Knightdale High School named it's new football coach late Wednesday evening.
Athletic director Guy Blough confirmed through an e-mail that Robert Senseney, the head coach at Roanoke (Va.) William Fleming will be the next football coach at Knightdale.
Senseney has compiled a 30-12 record at William Fleming High School, and posts a career record of 79-19 at three different schools.
While at Gretna (Va.) High School, Senseney won two Virginia High School League 2-A state championships in 2003 and 2004. In 2004, he also served as the head coach for the west team in the Virginia High School Coaches Association All-Star game, leading the team to the largest margin of victory in the all-star game's history.
Senseney already has ties to North Carolina.
A graduate of Terry Sanford High School in Fayetteville, Senseney received his undergraduate degree from East Carolina and got his teaching certification at Fayetteville State.
According to Blough, Senseney will arrive on campus on Mar. 24.
"Obviously we are very excited about him taking th reigns of our program and doing great things here," Blough said in an email.
Senseney replaces former head coach Kamelio Johnson who was relieved of his duties as head coach in January.
