Linginfelter new Sevier County football head coach

KNONXVILLE, Tenn. - It didn't take Sevier County high school long to fill their vacant football head coaching position left by Steve Brewer's stepping down to take a position outside of the church.

The Smoky Bears will promote offensive coordinator Tony Linginfelter to the head coaching position. Coach "Lingo" as he is known to the team was a key part of their recent offensive explosion. Linginfelter says he does not plan on changing anything within the offensive system this season.
