WORTH CO., GA (WALB) -

Worth County football will have its third coach in as many seasons this coming fall.

Worth County Schools athletics director Frankie Carroll will take over as the interim for a full season.

A search for a permanent replacement will commence this fall.

Simmons is a proven winner from his coaching days in Florida, as well as his 16-7 mark in two seasons at Turner County.

However the Rams went win-less in his first campaign.

"We're going to make a change in this coming season," Settle told WALB. "We just feel like our program isn't going in the direction we want it to go as a district."

Frankie Carroll was the Pelham head coach from 2011 to 2014.

He led the Hornets to a (13-27) record.

Before that he won 89 games in 8 seasons at Madison county in Florida including a 2007 state championship.
