TRENTON, Tenn. – Trenton Peabody is coming off their best football season in school history. The Golden Tide earned their first gold ball back in December against Marion County. The school learned on Thursday the leader of that team, Ricky Woods, will not return as head coach. “Not a move I saw coming, but it’s been handled very professionally,” Peabody principal Tim Haney said. “His name [Woods] will forever be attached to the program.” Woods compiled a 22-5 record during his two-year tenure in Trenton. His next head coaching positing brings him back to Mississippi to coach Starkville High School. Mississippi is home for Woods. He spent a majority of his coaching career before he stepped foot on the West Tennessee scene. His massive success in Mississippi resulted in several state championships. Peabody hopes their next head coach can duplicate Woods’ achievements. “We want someone that wants to win — a competent professional that fits the Peabody program,” said Haney. The Golden Tide’s August 21st season opener is approaching quickly. Haney doesn’t plan on wasting any time of filling their vacancy. “I could have someone as early as tonight and as late as next week. I’ve talked to people in house as well,” Haney explained. “A lot of activity is going on. My goal is to find a coach early to mid next week.”
