The New Albany School Board of Trustees approved the hiring of Josh Griffin as New Albany High School’s Head Tennis Coach at the May school board meeting

Griffin has nearly twenty years of experience as an educator and coach in the public school setting in Mississippi, with twelve of those being a head tennis coach.  Most recently he served as Head Tennis Coach and a science teacher at Saltillo High School.

“I am extremely grateful to the administration of New Albany Schools and am elated to have the opportunity to become the next Head Tennis Coach at New Albany High School, a program I have admired and respected for 12 years now,” Griffin said. “It is my expectation to extend what is already a high ceiling of the championship culture and success for the student-athletes of the tennis program.”

Griffin is excited to invest in the community where he and his family have resided the past nine years. He looks forward to meeting the tennis team, his colleagues, and more of the New Albany community in the weeks to come.

“We are excited about Coach Griffin coming on board to lead our tennis program.  The program has experienced great success for more than twenty years and we believe Coach Griffin can continue this success,” said Cody Stubblefield, Athletic Director at New Albany High School.

“We are looking forward to Coach Griffin and his family being a part of the New Albany Bulldog family,” Stubblefield added.

Griffin holds a Bachelor of Science in Education and a Master of Education from Delta State University.
