Ashley Harden, Butler’s head football coach for the past three seasons, is the new head coach at Jenkins County.
Harden confirmed his move in a telephone interview tonight.
He leaves Butler with a 15-16 mark, going 15-6 the past two seasons. This year, Harden led the Bulldogs to the state playoffs for the first time since 2003
Harden cited Jenkins County’s “total commitment” to winning as one of the draws, though he added the support from Butler's teachers and students made the decision difficult.
“It’s hard to leave something like that,” he said.
