WARNER ROBINS, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) -Warner Robins High School football fans got to meet their newest head football coach Tuesday night.
Mike Chastain, the 11th coach in WRHS history, held a meet and greet in the school’s cafeteria. Chastain, who spent the last three seasons as offensive coordinator at Houston County High School, has also been at a few other middle Georgia schools, including Bleckley County and Peach County.
He says everywhere he’s been, he’s had a quarterback go on to play in college. That list includes Houston County quarterback Jake Fromm, who’s verbally committed to Alabama.
“Jake was a special person,” Chastain says. “He worked his tail off and he was just a really great player that studied hard and put everything together. He had all the tools. We’re going to find somebody here that does a lot of the same things. Can we say we’re going to find the same guy? Time will tell on that.”
Chastain plans to bring his fast-paced offense with him to Warner Robins. He plans to have an “attacking defense that flies to the football.”
The Northside High School graduate replaces Bryan Way, who announced last month he’s retiring after 12 seasons as the Demons’ head coach.
