He has coached in college and high school at Georgia Southern, The Westminster Schools, Mountain View High School and Etowah High School.
In announcing Anderson’s hire, Walker Head of School Carl Carlson said, “I am thrilled to have Coach Anderson leading this program through the next chapter in Walker’s history. There was a lot of interest in this position, and Coach Anderson rose to the top of our list because of his football experience at all levels, passion for Walker football and his plan for building a strong program.”
Anderson, who also serves as the Assistant Director of Admissions, said: “I’m most excited to build a perennial-winning program and to put my own stamp on Walker football. I want to build a program on trust, accountability and commitment, but most importantly, I want our team to serve the people at Walker and the broader Marietta community.”
