Coosa High School (CHS) is excited to announce Joey Mathis as the new Athletic Director.

“We are excited to name Coach Joey Mathis our new athletic director,” said CHS principal Judson Cox. “He is a huge part of what we do here at Coosa and plays a pivotal role daily. His dedication to our athletic programs, students, and community is evident and he is a constant for everyone involved. He puts his heart in everything he does, and we are excited he chose to stay home and continue to build on the foundation he helped create.” 

A Northwest Georgia native, Mathis came to Coosa as the head football coach in 2020 following a four-year head coaching position at Marion County High School in Marion County, Tennessee. Previously, Mathis spent time with Adairsville, Pepperell, and Shorter University football programs.  

Mathis possesses a wealth of knowledge and has already been instrumental in assisting coaches and programs in various capacities. His commitment to providing support at CHS remains unwavering, and he is actively exploring avenues to further enhance the programs.

Throughout his time coaching at CHS, Coach Mathis devoted himself not only to his football team and program, but also played a crucial role in the growth of the Coosa community, a role that will persist as he transitions into his new position.
