Scott Durham is one signature away from becoming the next football coach at Andrews High School.
The Georgetown County School Board approved his teaching contract at its meeting last night. Durham is not officially hired until he signs the contract.
A 1997 Clemson University graduate, Durham has been the quarterbacks coach at Goose Creek High School since 2004. He is also the school’s head baseball coach and teaches driver education and social studies.
The Gators won the Class AAAA state football title in 2011, but didn’t get to defend it in 2012 after the South Carolina High School League ruled the team used an ineligible player.
A 1991 graduate of Pickens High School, Durham has also coached at Buford, North Central and Pendleton high schools.
Durham replaces Steve Blanchard, who led the Yellow Jackets to a 15-26 record in four years.
Andrews co-athletic director Roland Clemons did not return a call seeking comment.
