Oakdale will have a new football coach when the 2008 high school football season kicks off next month. Chip Strickland resigned back on July 9 after only one season as head coach.
Strickland went 0-10 in his lone season at Oakdale, but cited a once in a lifetime opportunity and lack of support from the administration, as reasons for his departure.
Strickland was hired as the athletic director at Knoxville Christian School. He is working with former OHS head coach Willie Childers, who serves as principal at KCS.
