Statewide coaching changes

Gordonsville football coach Scott Clemons resigns after four seasons

After four seasons as head football coach at Gordonsville, Scott Clemons has resigned from his post.

 “I am very thankful for the opportunity to be a part of a football program like Gordonsville and this place has always and will always be special to me,” Clemons said. 

Clemons, 1990 Gordonsville graduate will continue in his position as assistant principal at Gordonsville Elementary School.

Clemons led the Tigers to a 34-16 overall record in his tenure at Gordonsville, which included four Class 1A playoff appearances.

The Tigers finished 11-2 this season and lost to eventual 1A state champion South Pittsburg in the quarterfinals.

Clemons got his first football coaching job at Macon County in 1994 before moving to Lebanon as an assistant.

Clemons went back to coach at Gordonsville in 1997 and was part of the staff that won the 1A state title in 2012.

Coach Clemons has resigned as head football coach but he is not going anywhere. He will still be part of our football program in a different capacity.

"Coach Clemons did a great job leading our football team these last four years. He did a great job on the field but probably most important he was a mentor and father figure to a lot of his players. He held them accountable on the field and in the classroom, he worked them hard and taught them to respect the game and others. I appreciate and am proud of how Coach Clemons has led our program," Gordonsville principal Shane Vaden said.
The last four head coaches for Gordonsville: Clemons (2018-21), Ron Marshall (2009-17), Bob Dillard (2001-08) and Stanley Wills (1992-2000) are all Gordonsville graduates.

Currently 18 schools in Baylor, Clay County, Columbia Academy, Columbia, East Robertson, Gordonsville, Hillcrest, Lakeway Christian, Liberty Creek, Melrose, Milan, Montgomery Central, Northeast, South-Doyle, South Gibson, South Pittsburg, York Institute, Wartburg and White Station are in the market for a head coach.
