Etowah High School has named its next head volleyball coach and didn’t have to look far.

Bryan Jones, who teaches physical education at neighboring E.T. Booth Middle School, will bring more than 20 years of playing and coaching experience to lead Etowah’s volleyball program.

During his 15 years coaching for Pope High School, Jones' teams won 522 matches and three consecutive state titles (2009-2011), six trips to the final four, four trips to the state finals, six county titles, and eight area championships. This success earned him region coach of the year eight times and state coach of the year three times.

“Eagle Nation would like to welcome Coach Jones to the family,” Principal Robert Horn said.

Jones and his wife, Jenny, have three children: Sydney, who plays soccer at Etowah; incoming Etowah freshman, Jordyn; and Bryce, who will attend E.T. Booth next year.
