AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - At his first coaching job in Georgia Larry Harold led Macon County to its first ever win over Americus-Sumter.
A short 5 years later and he's taking over the program that was once a bullet point on his resume.
Harold spent Wednesday meeting with players and coaches at his new school.
He was hired Thursday to be the 9th head coach in Americus-Sumter football history.
This will be Harold's 4th school in the past 5 years.
His previous stops were Macon County, Brunswick and Central in Macon.
He's no stranger to getting acclimated to a new environment.
Meeting his new football players fortified his decision to return to South Georgia.
"They remind me of my Macon County kids," said Harold. "Just kids from a small community that love football. You look at them, you look at their chest, their arms and they are in the weight room. They're working hard every day after school i got to see them work out after 4th block, and I'm just excited."
21 seniors from that (9-3) region championship team will graduate.
Harold is taking over for Erik Soliday who retired from the public school system and took over at Tiftarea this offseason.
