Mary Persons’ offensive line coach Jamarcus Johnson is leaving the Bulldogs to be defensive line coach at Ware County High School in Waycross next year.

An MP alumnus, Johnson has been at MP for seven years over two stints. 

Coach Brian Nelson said Johnson wants to move up in the coaching ranks and doesn’t see anyone leaving MP for him to do that here.

He did a great job,” said Nelson. He’s a really, really good football coach, and very loyal to Mary Persons football. I wish Coach Johnson and his family the best.”

Nelson said he hasn’t hired a replacement yet.

Johnson was also a PE coach at Mary Persons.
