The sidelines at Pat Parker Memorial Field will be noticeably less crowded come football season. That is because Macon County High School defensive coordinator Jason Harville announced last week that he has decided to leave the program. Coach Harville a graduate of Smith County High School and Cumberland University has been with the Tigers since the arrival of Pat Dyer in 1999. Harville, who filled the defensive coordinator's position, will now be coaching for the Smith County Owl's. Harville will more than likely coach linebackers for the Owl's a state semifinalist just last year. Harville will also be the head coach of the Lady Owl softball team. Coach Harville and his wife Lisa have one daughter named Grace and reside in Pleasant Shade, Tennessee. Harville will teach physical education at Smith County High School and stated that it was hard to pass up a chance to return to his home town. Harville makes the second coach in as many months to announce their resignations. Keith Goolsby, the offensive coordinator of the Tigers announced last month that he will be heading up the same position at Watertown High School next fall. Both coaches were a part of the magical 2003 season that saw the Tigers advance to the semifinals of the Class AAA State Playoffs! Coach Harville will be sorely missed around Macon County!
