Robert Brian Thomas has been named the new head football coach at Northern Guilford High School….

Coach Thomas has been on the football staff at Northern Guilford the past three years/seasons serving at the Nighthawks’ defensive coordiantor….Coach Brian Thomas led the NG defense during their three straight NCHSAA 3-AA Championship Seasons…

The move seems to fit with the continuity that the Nighthawks would like to keep in place, with Coach Thomas knowing the system, since much of it is his system and he is the coach that put it in play…

Northern will also look to retain nearly all of their assistants coaches from the previous staff, that served under Coach Thomas and former Nighthawk head coach Johnny Roscoe…

Coach Thomas graduated from Presbyterian College(Clinton, S.C.) back in 1989 and he served on Coach Roscoe’s staff at Lancaster, South Carolina for 16 years(1990-2005)….Coach Thomas was also an assistant coach at Wade Hampton High School in Greenville, South Carolina for four years prior to heading to Northern Guilford HS, as the defensive coordinator….

This will be the first football head coaching job for Coach Thomas and the players and staff at Northern Guilford know him already and that should be a real plus in his work/role in carrying on the Nighthawk winning tradition….
