Trinity Christian School announced on Tuesday that it has found its next head football coach in former offensive coordinator Christopher Simpson.

"It's kinda always been a dream come true to be a head coach at the high school level," Simpson said. "To be able to work with the kids and teach more technique and be more part of their lives. The fit honestly couldn't be any better for me."

Simpson served in a few roles with the Warriors in their first season last fall but was promoted to OC/ passing game coordinator at the end of the 2019 season.

He replaces coach Marcus Law who resigned in April.

"What I want to continue is the maturity both physical and mental side of the game and let the kids keep understanding the importance of what the off season means, what practice means, and the importance of sticking to your game plan during the games and how important it is to tie all those things together through out a weekly schedule."

Simpson has already hired Michael Mackenzie to be his assistant head coach and plans to hire 7-8 assistants within the next week.

He was a starting placekicker on semipro teams in the OVFL, MCFL & PIFL. He also served as head coach of the West Virginia SMASH, a semipro team in the GDFL that is based in Morgantown.

"Everybody learns at different levels & speeds and everybody responds differently," he said. "Being with all those different teams throughout the years and coaching a lot of different quality guys really made me more receptive, instead of just being deadline 'this is the way I coach.' I'm a little bit more open."

His dad Pete Simpson played quarterback at University High School.

The Warriors will enter year two of their resurgence in the Fall of 2020. They went 2-8 in 2019 in their first football season since 2013. He is hopeful that his first chance to coach the Warriors will come during the 3-week period in June.
