Former Tennessee Titan and LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger will be seen coaching on a high school sideline in 2020.
Mettenberger who played at LSU (2011-13) and was drafted in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans has been hired as the new offensive coordinator at Hillsboro.
“Zach told us he wanted to get into coaching high school football and he only lives five minutes away from Hillsboro, so it’s a great fit for everyone involved,” Hillsboro coach Maurice Fitzgerald said.
“We had a offensive coordinator position open and Zach wanted to work with the quarterbacks only at first but once he got to talking to the players, he’s a natural coach for them and it made sense for him to coordinate the offense and the offensive players are excited.”
Mettenberger passed for 5,783 yards in his three seasons at LSU in which he started his last two seasons in 2012 and 2013as he threw 34 touchdowns in his 25 starts at quarterback.
He started 10 games in his two seasons with the Titans (2014-15) throwing for 2,347 yards and 12 touchdowns.
