CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Myers Park has hired Rock Hill South Pointe assistant Greg Taylor as its new football coach.
Taylor replaces Jim Ruark, who left earlier this year to take a job as head coach at East Burke.
Taylor was offensive coordinator at South Pointe for the past three seasons. He helped the 2008 South Pointe team win a S.C. state championship. He was previously head coach at Fort Mill and an assistant at Gaffney.
Myers Park athletics director Greg Clewis said Taylor was chosen from a list of 113 applicants. The school will have a reception for Taylor April 23 at 5:30 p.m. at the Myers Park art gallery.
"We are really excited about coach Taylor leading our football program," Myers Park principal Tom Spivey said. "He is a positive person, knowledgeable and has a real passion for high school football. We are very fortunate to find someone of his caliber."
