BRISTOL, Tenn. (WJHL) – The Tennessee High football team found its new head coach with former Viking standout and former assistant coach Josh Holt being introduced as the new head man at the high school on Tuesday.

Holt has been on the staff since 2018 and knew he always wanted to be the man in charge in Bristol.

“I got my dream job, to be 100% honest with you, to play ball here,” Holt said. “Viking football means the world to me. I’ve worked really hard to get back here to be the head football coach here.

“We are going to focus on a few things, just simple things; number one will be discipline. We have to be disciplined in all aspects of the game, whether it’s in the locker room or on the field.”

The Vikings went 3-7 last season, which marked the first losing season for the Vikings since 2016. Holt mentioned it’ll be important to key in on the basics of the sport.

“We have to be as simple as we possibly can. Discipline and simplicity go together, and the consistency will follow. And if you are disciplined, and you’re simple, the consistency side of it takes care of itself.”
