JEFFERSONVILLE — Twiggs County will have its fifth head football coach in six seasons in the 2014 season.

Jeb Stewart is out as the head football coach and athletics director at Twiggs County. The school board posted the job opening on the Teach Georgia website Wednesday.

Stewart went 5-15 in two years in Jeffersonville. He was the third coach in three seasons when he took over in 2012.

Stewart improved from 2-18 in the two seasons prior to his arrival. Josh Lowe was winless as the head coach in 2011, and Dexter Dawson went 2-8 in 2010.

Prior to 2010, the Cobras were one of the more successful Class A programs in Middle Georgia under Dexter Copeland.

Copeland led them to seven winning seasons in nine years as head coach. They won 10 or more games four times, including going 11-2 in 2009. Copeland left Twiggs County just before the start of the 2010 season for Baldwin.

Copeland went 27-17 in four years at Baldwin, but he was ousted as head coach a few weeks back.

Copeland attended a Washington County football practice Wednesday and was asked if he had any interest in returning to Twiggs County. He said he was considering a few different options but wasn’t specific.
