MCHS Announces New Head Football Coach


Officials at Macon County High school announced today that Nathan Wilson will become the new Head Coach of the football program.

Supervisor of Schools Margaret Oldham offered the job to Wilson on Monday the 17th and he accepted.

Wilson is a local product. He graduated from Macon County High in 2002 where he was a four year letterman in the football program. He received his degree and certification to teach from Western Kentucky University and came back to Lafayette to coach and teach.

For the past six seasons Wilson has been at the helm at the Macon County Junior High School. In those six seasons he has won four division championships and two conference championships amassing a record of 34 wins and 18 losses.

“I am extremely excited about the opportunity to work with and in a program that I truly am passionate about,” said Wilson. He indicated his goals for the program were to certainly do well, but that he wanted to work hard and create young men who were successful on and off the field.

In the off season Macon County High School underwent realignment. In District 8AA MCHS will compete against Cannon County, DeKalb County, Livingston Academy, Smith County, Upperman, and York Institute in football, as well as four other non-district opponents each year.

Congratulations to the new MCHS head football coach Nathan Wilson.
