Jacksonville names new AD & football coach

The Jacksonville Indians didn't have to go far to find a new athletic director and head football coach.  Chapel Hill offensive coordinator Christopher Taber will make the jump to 4A next season.  Taber helped lead the Bulldogs to two straight state championship games, including the 3A Division I state title in December.

Chapel Hill head coach Thomas Sitton says it's sad to see his good friend leave the program, but he's excited to see Taber succeed in Jacksonville.

"He's a great coach and a great guy," Sitton said of Taber.  "He's going to do good things in Jacksonville."

Taber will replace Steve Wells who resigned in February.
