Legendary softball coach Clifford Kirk has been hired to coach the softball team at Sale Creek High School.
Kirk guided Hixson to two state championships and last spring directed Soddy-Daisy to its eighth state title.
Kirk said he was recently offered the job by Sale Creek Principal Tobin Davidson. Kirk had previously coached at Soddy-Daisy Middle when Davidson was principal there.
Kirk will work as a non-faculty coach. His assistant will be former Sequatchie County player Kendra Mooneyham. His overall record is 912-196.
After Kirk retired at Soddy-Daisy, he was succeeded by his assistant there, Wes Skiles.
