Thomas hired again at Harnett Central

Posted February 20, 2013

Harnett Central High School is looking to its past to find its future.

Dave Thomas has been named the head coach of the Troajns' football team for a second time. He met with the team on Friday afternoon for the first time as the head coach.

Last season, Thomas served as an assistant at Harnett Central under Patrick Turner, who announced earlier this month he was leaving the school to take over a program in Florida.

Thomas began a two-year stretch as the head coach at Harnett Central in 2000, but left after the 2001 season to coach in Tennessee. The Trojans posted a 5-6 overall record, falling to Winston-Salem Parkland in the first round of the state playoffs in his last season as the head coach.

"He was successful here the first time around, and he knows the school," Harnett Central Athletic Director Will Gage said.

As a coach in Tennessee, Thomas was a part of a state championship coaching staff.

"He has a lot of drive, a lot of desire to be successful, and I think he will be able to pass that along to the kids," said Gage. "It was nice to have someone of that caliber as a candidate right here at the school."

Since 2001, Harnett Central has had three other coaches â€“ John Ward, Marc Morris and Turner.
