Coy Sisk is once again defensive coordinator for CHS football

Coy Sisk, who served as Central High School’s football defensive coordinator 2005-09, will be returning to that postion for the 2013 season, CHS athletic director Richard Skipper announced this week.

“We’re excited to have him back,” Skipper said.

Marshall and Lincoln counties. While he said he enjoyed coaching at his high school alma mater in Lincoln County, Sisk is now eager to return to CHS.

“Everything pointed back to Manchester,” Sisk said. “Things kept falling into place.”

Sisk said the decision to return to Coffee County was made with his wife, Amy, also a former CHS teacher. “My wife and I talked about it, and it seemed like the right thing to do—not that there was anything wrong [at Lincoln County],” he explained. Sisk and his family are in the process of moving into a home in Coffee County. Sisk will be an ISD instructor at CHS, and Amy will be looking to work at the school again as well.

Sisk, a 1993 Lincoln County High School graduate, played on that school’s state championship team his junior year. He went on to attend Maryville College and Middle Tennessee State University, where he earned degrees in physical and secondary education.

In addition to serving as football defensive coordinator at CHS under coaches Bill Price and Eddie Nunley, Sisk was an assistant baseball coach under Chase Jones. Sisk was considered to be a candidate for the head coaching position after Price resigned following the 2007 season. The job went to Nunley, however, who resigned in 2010 and was replaced by current head coach Lee Davis.
