GAINESVILLE -- Chestatee High School Principal Suzanne Jarrard announced Monday that assistant Bill Forman will be promoted to be the next head football coach of the War Eagles.
Forman will replace Stan Luttrell, who recently resigned to accept a position at Buford High School.
The appointment of Forman as head coach is pending approval from the Hall County Board of Education, which meets Monday evening.
“I am thrilled to announce that Bill Forman will be our next head football coach," Jarrard said via press release. "After considering many candidates, it was clear that coach Forman is the man for the job. Coach Forman has been instrumental in our recent success and is positioned to move us forward to even greater heights. His commitment to winning on and off the field is unparalleled. Without a doubt, he will produce a winning team on Friday nights and a winning team of young men who, after their high school careers are over, will be just that -– good men.”
Forman, who has acted as the team's defensive coordinator for the past two seasons, shaping units that helped Chestatee to historic campaigns -- including a first-ever state playoff win in 2013 -- was thrilled to get the offer.
“I am honored about the opportunity to serve the War Eagle football family," Forman said. "We have established a firm foundation built upon character and hard work. I am extremely excited at the challenge of seeing what heights we can reach next.”
During his 20 year career, Forman has seven years of head coaching experience at three different high schools.
Forman will lead the War Eagles into the 2014 campaign in a revamped Region 8-AAAA that will include defending Class AAA champ Buford, arch-rival North Hall, old region foe and rising program White County, and playoff regular North Oconee. Region 8-AAAA stalwarts Monroe Area and Stephens County will also still be on the schedule.
Coach Forman and his wife, Amy, have 2 sons: Connor, age 12 and Nathaniel, age 7.
