Don Poff has stepped down after six seasons as football coach at Whetstone High School and has been replaced by a longtime assistant coach with the program, Tom Jones, athletics director Randy King announced June 19.

Jones also is the Braves’ wrestling coach.

“He’s a longtime assistant, he’s a teacher in the building and he’s been with the program for many years,” King said of Jones. “He’s been through several head coaches and he’s also my head wrestling coach, so he has head-coaching experience and he’s consistent with the program. I felt that he was right for the position.”

Under Poff, the Braves went 25-35, with their lone winning season coming in 2013 when they finished 6-4. Whetstone finished 3-7 overall and 2-4 in the City League-North Division last season.
