ETSU Hiring Furman Offensive Coordinator George Quarles As Their New Head Coach
ETSU has been on the hunt for their next head coach after Randy Sanders announced his retirement on December 13th. Some of the candidates to have been considered were ETSU’s defensive coordinator Billy Taylor, VMI’s head coach Scott Wachenheim, Furman’s offensive coordinator George Quarles, and Los Angeles Chargers wide receivers coach Chris Beatty.
George Quarles is expected to be announced as their new head coach during a press conference today during a welcome press on the ETSU campus in Johnson City, Tennessee. Quarles rewrote Tennessee record books as head coach of Maryville High School, going 250-16 in 18 seasons and winning 11 state championships.
Over the past five seasons, Quarles has been part of the staff at his alma mater, Furman University. While he was a player, he helped the Paladins to their only national championship in 1988. For the last four seasons, he has been Furman’s offensive coordinator helping them become one of the Southern Conference’s highest-scoring offenses.
