Bobby Hughes, the first head football coach in Howard history, has landed the new head coaching gig at Cass in Cartersville.
Hughes served as the Cass defensive coordinator the past three years.
The community is hungry and wants to be successful, Hughes told the Daily Tribune News. They are willing to support us and help us.
Hughes spent five seasons as the head coach at Macon County from 2003-07. He made the playoffs each season and won 10 games twice and finished 42-17 overall.
He was tabbed to start the athletics program at Howard, going 5-25 in three years as head coach. The Huskies went 3-7 in 2009, which is still the best record in school history.
Hughes previously served on the coaching staffs of C.B. Cornett at Central and Macon County. He was on the Macon County staff when the Bulldogs won a state title in 1996.
