JACKSON, Tenn.- Tigrett Middle School principal Dexter Williams is turning in his principal's hat for his coaching whistle...again.

The former Union Bulldog has accepted the head boys basketball coaching post at Milan High School.

Before taking over at Tigrett, Williams led the Crusaders at Liberty Tech High School. Williams said he has always loved teaching young players and is excited to get back to doing what he loves.

"I have a deep passion for coaching. I think it's one of those things that'll always be a part of me. If I'm not doing it, I think I'll always miss it. I'm a young man right now, I'm 36 years old, I just feel like I've got several more coaching years left in me," said Williams.

Williams last day at Tigrett is May 31. He starts in Milan the first week in June.
