Morgan County High School baseball coach Brandon Patch has announced that he will be coaching baseball and serving as an assistant Athletic Director for Coosa High School, Rome, which is Patch’s alma mater. Patch said that the choice to move back to his hometown of Rome was a “family decision,” which was guided by the fact that he currently has two young children.
He stated that it “seemed like the right time” to move his family back to where he grew up. He said further that he enjoyed his 11 “great years coaching at Morgan County,” where he was able to make “a lot of lifelong friends. Patch said that he feels that the baseball program was able to make “good strides” during his time as a coach for Morgan County, adding that he will “miss the assistant coaches and the players the most” and that he always appreciated the support of both the community and the school administration, both as a Morgan County coach and a teacher. “I’ve always felt Morgan County was a great place, surrounded by good people,” said Patch. “We’ve enjoyed our time here.”
