With the start of the 2011 football season exactly a month away, Trigg County will be searching for a new football coach to replace Shannon Burcham, who was named the new high school principal Monday.
Burcham beat out three other candidates for the position of TCHS principal, replacing Neal Cummins who resigned earlier this spring.
Burcham was 26-22 in four seasons as head coach at Trigg County following one season as head coach at Madisonville. He served as a longtime assistant coach at Trigg before taking the Madisonville job in 2006.
Burcham taught math in the high school and served as assistant athletic director. He will have a hand in naming his successor, with current assistant coach Coby Lewis the likely frontrunner.
Trigg County opens their season August 19th against Russellville.
