Pitts named MCHS football coach

Thursday, July 12, 2012

Marshall County Schools Director Jackie Abernathy has named Aaron J. Pitts to be the new football coach for Marshall County High School.

Pitts, 30, of Unionville was a physical education teacher and offensive coordinator for the MCHS Tigers from 2007-2010. He's more recently been working at Stratford High School in Nashville. Before that he was at Warren County High School.

Clearly "pleased" to have Pitts back with the Tigers, Abernathy happily told an ironic chain of events.

MCHS Principal Keith Stacey gave Pitts a good recommendation to Stratford, "And now, he's taking him away," Abernathy said.

Pitts' master's and undergraduate degrees are from Middle Tennessee State University.

Born in Monticello, Miss., Pitts has been married 10 years. He and his wife, Esther, have three children: three-year-old twins and a seven-year-old.
