Former Columbus High School Head Football Coach Tony Stanford has accepted the Oak Hill football head coaching position Monday night, according to OHA Athletic Director Marion Bratton.
The Raidersâ€™ head coaching position opened after Daniel Merchant left the position for an undisclosed position in early June.
Stanfordâ€™s most recent stint was a four-year stop with Columbus, compiling a 22-23 overall record. Stanford led Columbus to the schoolâ€™s first playoff berth in seven seasons during the 2012 campaign. He left Columbus after school administration requested he leave the post and Stanford complied Dec. 18.
Stanford, a Winona High School alumnus, has 38 years of coaching experience along the sidelines of Mississippi. His most memorable season was a MHSAA Class-4A championship with the Louisville Wildcats in 1995.
