Middle Tennessee Christian School has announced B.J. Robertson will serve as interim head coach for football in the 2020 season. He will take the reins as former coach Fred Shambaugh resigned to take a position in Texas.
"I'm excited for the opportunity to serve as the leader of our football program this fall. I have been blessed to be part of the MTCS family for the last three years and am honored that Mr. Tiller and Dr. Sain have put their trust in me to continue building a culture of excellence on the field, in the classroom, and in our community," Robertson said.
Coach Robertson is a graduate of Bethel University where he played quarterback from '09-'13. He then worked for three seasons as an assistant coach at his alma mater Huntland High School, before joining the Cougar coaching staff in 2017. Coach Robertson was promoted to offensive coordinator for the 2019 season. He has also served as an assistant on the MTCS high school basketball team for three seasons.
MTCS secondary principal Dr. Robert Sain added, "We feel that allowing Coach Robertson to lead as our interim coach was the best decision for our program at this point in the year. A new coach beginning in June would have been difficult for our players and leave another program searching for a coach in late June. We will resume our head coaching search at the conclusion of the 2020 season."
