Noblesville announced the hiring of Jason Simmons as football coach at its school board meeting on Tuesday night.
Simmons, the dean of students at Noblesville, was the offensive coordinator for the Millers the past three seasons. He became a top candidate for the job when Lance Scheib resigned as coach in November after eight seasons.
Simmons was 21-4 as a head coach at Hamilton Heights in 2009 and ’10, winning two conference championships and a sectional title. Simmons also served as an assistant coach and assistant athletic director at Ben Davis.
“We are excited for coach Simmons to take the reins of the Miller football program,” Noblesville principal Jeff Bryant said. “It was clear to the interview committee that he is committed to our students and our community. He has a vision and a plan for making our football team successful on the field and for making our student-athletes better off the field.”
Noblesville’s last winning season was in 2001 and most-recent sectional title was in 2000.
