When it comes to a struggling football program, the key to breathing some life back into the locker room is juice.
Pearl River Community College is about to get a double shot of concentrated pulp from one of the most high octane high school football coaches in the entire state.
As first reported by the Sun Herald and later confirmed by News 25 through a source, East Central Head Man Seth Smith is stepping down from his post to accept the same position at PRCC.
Smith just wrapped up his seventh season in Hurley, guiding the Hornets to an overall mark of 53-35 during that span. Perhaps even more impressive, East Central was a combined 32-7 over the past three seasons including a run to the 4A state title game in 2017.
What a hire for the Wildcats who went just 10-17 in three seasons under the watch of Ted Egger.
This move brings Smith back to his junior college alma mater which will become official during Pearl River’s official announcement at a press conference set for 2 p.m. Thursday.
PRCC Athletics has yet to confirm the hire.
