HURT NAMED NEW OBHS FOOTBALL COACH

image_name2

By BOB BAKKEN Sports Editor - DeSoto Times-Tribune

January 21, 2016

Olive Branch High School has again turned to someone with college coaching experience to lead the Conquistadors' football program.

The school is just hoping this time their new coach will last longer than one year.

The DeSoto County School District Board of Education Thursday night approved the hiring of Pete Hurt as the new leader of the Olive Branch football fortunes. The appointment came as part of the personnel portion of the board's recessed meeting and there was no special announcement of the appointment.

Hurt is not new to DeSoto County but actually returns to the area from Georgia Tech, where he has been the Yellowjackets' Assistant Director of Player Personnel since March 2014.

The new Quistors' coach brings 35 years of sideline experience at the college and high school level with more than 100 wins as a head coach.

That coaching experience included a stop as Center Hill football coach between 2007-2010, when the Mustangs were 23-23 with Hurt leading the team.

Hurt's most success likely came at Samford University, where he was the Birmingham, Ala. school's third-winningest coach in school history during eight years on the Bulldogs' sideline, before being released five games into the 2001 season with a 1-4 record.

The Bulldogs were 42-39-1 under Hurt between 1994-2001 and he was also defensive coordinator for one season under Chan Gailey before his promotion, when Gailey took an assistant coaching job in the NFL.

In the high school ranks, the Cleveland, Miss. native has also coached in Clinton and Northwest Rankin, taking both teams and Center Hill past the first round of playoffs while there.

The resume also has Hurt making assistant coaching stops at North Texas, Southeast Missouri, Baylor, Lamar, Rice, Samford, and the Air Force Academy.

Hurt, in a news release announcing the hiring, was quoted as saying he wants to mold Olive Branch back into the elite of Mississippi high school football programs.

“Olive Branch High School is a school with a rich tradition of success, and I would like to make it a top 6A program,” Hurt said.

Hurt added the move back to Mississippi reunites him and his wife with family here.

“We have family in DeSoto County,” Hurt said. “This is where my wife and I want to be. I was in administration at Georgia Tech. This job gives me an opportunity to get back on the field with players. This is what I love.”

Hurt is a graduate of Mississippi College, where he was a three-year letterman in football and two-year letterman in baseball for the Choctaws.

OBHS SPECIALTY VEHICLE TAGS NOW AVAILABLE AT TAX COLLECTOR'S OFFICE

image_name2

SHOW YOUR SCHOOL SPIRIT!  The Olive Branch School Specialty Vehicle Tags are now available for purchase at the DeSoto County Tax Collector's Office on B.J. Chain Drive off Hwy. 305 in Olive Branch.  The tag has a Conquistador school logo and swords set on a gold background on the left side along with letters "OB" on the right side of the right side and  "Olive Branch High School" is printed on the bottom.

On March 31, 2009 the Mississippi Legislature passed an amendment presented by former State Senator Merle Flowers into a conference report that will create a distinctive motor vehicle license plate for Olive Branch High School.  The tag will cost an additional thirty-one dollars, with approximately twenty-four dollars from each license plate sold going directly to the Olive Branch Football Booster Club.  

Thanks Senator Flowers and OBHS Supporters for Your Help in this Project!
