The name, mascot, and colors of the consolidated high school won’t be the only change; it will also have a new football coach. Current Union High School Coach Tommy Bobo announced to his players today that he has resigned to take a position at Dorman High School in Spartanburg. He will be an offensive assistant coach there, as well as an assistant track coach.
Bobo was emotional at times when he announced his decision to the 9-11 grade football players; he will meet with this year’s seniors individually. Bobo stated that the timing of the announcement was unfortunate, coming so close to the controversial consolidation plan, but he gave assurance that the decision had been in the works before that.
Bobo, head coach for the past 3 years, also spent many years as assistant coach under Shell Dula and Mike Anthony. He said he would miss Friday nights at Union County Stadium, and also working with the coaches, staff, and especially the students and players at Union.
Union High Principal Joe Walker praised Bobo as a great man and mentor to the kids, and said he was sorry to see him go. Walker said no replacement will be named yet, but that the athletic review committee would be working diligently to find the right replacement.
