WBHF confirmed with superintendent of Cartersville City Schools Dr. Howard Hinesly and Cartersville head football coach Joey King on Thursday morning that King will be returning to coach the Purple Hurricanes in 2016. After the Carrollton head coach job became vacant, it was believed that King was the front-runner for the position. Carrollton High School is where King was an offensive coordinator from 2008 – 2013, before becoming Cartersville’s head coach for the 2014 season.
