Ferrum's longtime defensive coordinator Cleive Adams has accepted the head coaching job at Averett University. The announcement was made today at a press conference in Danville. Adams brings a wealth of experience to the job, and in the press conference, pledged his commitment to the university and the community in an effort to bring success to the football program.
This development, while positive for Adams, leaves a vacancy in the coaching staff at Ferrum. I am sure coach Harper will have mixed emotions about his former defensive coordinator, but this should be looked at a an opportunity for the Ferrum program. New blood can be a great thing, and a search for Adams replacement should begin immediately. I hope that an announcement is posted soon. The hiring process should be expedited, as this is a critical position.
Congratulations Coach Adams, and good luck!!
