There will be a familiar face taking control of the Highlander football program.
Zac Benfield has been announced as head coach of the Cloudland football program. The school announced the hire in a Friday press release.
Benfield is no stranger to Cloudland football as he is a former standout player for the ‘Landers, and has served as an assistant coach in the past for both the Cloudland High and Cloudland Middle school programs.
Currently, Benfield is an assistant coach for Avery County (N.C.) and helped the Hampton program in the fall.
Benfield replaces Scott Potter – who resigned in March.
