After just two season with the Gilmer Bobcats, Kevin Saunders will be looking for a new home.
Coach Saunders led the Bobcats to their first victory in 3 years on August 30th of 2019 with a victory over Towns County. Gilmer finished that season 4-6, ending up 5th in the region standings.
This season, Coach Saunders led the Bobcats to a 3-6 record after reclassifiying down to 3A, and for the first time in 4 years, Gilmer was in the playoff discussion.
Coach Saunders won the Virgina State Championship in 2011, finishing with a 13-2 record that season. He then found success in Georgia with Pebblebrooke, making the playoffs in three consecutive years from 2016 to 2018 before taking over at Gilmer in 2019.
This will be another vacancy in our coverage area; as Woodstock, Dalton, and South Cobb have all parted ways with their former coaches.
Gilmer will be looking for their 4th coach in 6 years.
