HERRIN — Thursday night, the Herrin Tigers hired a new football coach and it’s a familiar face. Rod Sherrill, who coached the Tigers from 1999 to 2001, has taken over for the retiring Jason Karnes.
Sherrill has been serving as an assistant coach on Karnes’ staff. During his first stint with the Tigers, Sherrill led the team to a 10-18 record and took the Tigers to the playoffs in 2001, ending a 5-year postseason drought.
You can hear Herrin Tiger Football beginning on August 28th, 2020 on 103.5 ESPN.
