Hendersonville football coach Sosebee hired as Crest’s head coach

Many Friday nights, Hendersonville High football coach Jim Sosebee could be found standing near the center of Dietz Field with a smile on his face — and another win added to his legacy.

He won 50 games over the last six seasons as the Bearcat coach. His last win — a dominant 38-13 victory over powerhouse Burns in the third round of the state playoffs — is one of a few reasons that Sosebee has earned his last win for one of the premiere football programs in Western North Carolina.

After 10 years at Hendersonville, Sosebee has been hired to be the next football coach at Crest. Cleveland County Schools approved the hire at its regular School Board meeting on Monday.

“I love Hendersonville,” Sosebee said. “They’ve been nothing but good to me and my family. This is definitely one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever made in my life for real. There have been many sleepless nights.”
