Scott Earley Lands In Central Florida

Former Lexington athletic director and head football coach Scott Earley has landed another head coaching position and will be leaving the state.

Coach Earley has accepted the head coaching position at Seminole High School in Sanford, Florida. Coach Earley got a call from the Class 8A program earlier this week and met with school and district administrators on Tuesday and was offered the job an hour after the interview. After praying about the decision and discussing with the family, Coach Earley called back to accept the position.

Earley's most recent stint at Lexington High School ended this past Spring. Three years ago in his first season at Lexington, he guided the team to an 11-3 record. In year two of 2011, the Wildcats rolled through the regular season, but suffered their first loss of the year at home to Blythewood in the opening round of the playoffs. This past season, Lexington struggled to a 3-8 record after multiple injuries to key players on the team, but Earley's three seasons saw the Wildcats with a 25-12 record.

Before coming to Lexington, Earley spent the 2009 season at Chapin, guiding the Eagles to a 7-4 record just one year after he led Myrtle Beach to the state championship.

His new team, the 'Noles, play in 8A, District 2 and finished with a 7-5 record last season. The were 3-2 in district play and lost in the first round of the state playoffs. They won the 8A State Championship in 2008.

"I wasn't sure when I went down there," said Earley, who has been working as an assistant at Blackville-Hilda. "But they treated us very well down there and I really felt like this was a place that really wanted us; they really made us feel at home."

Coach Earley will be leaving this Monday to take over the reigns at his new job.

"It's going to be challenging," said Earley. "They've got a lot of potential to be a very good football team but there is a lot of work to be done."

I'll bring you more on this move after Coach settles in next week. South Carolina is losing a very good high school football coach and I'm going to miss my friend.
