SEARCY – Harding University offensive coordinator Tim Perry has resigned as an assistant football coach to take the head coaching position at Nashville (Ark.) High School.
Perry, a native of Rand, W.V., coached at Harding for two seasons, both as offensive coordinator. In 2009, he also served as offensive line coach. Under Perry's direction, Harding set a school record with 5,051 yards of total offense in 2008, finishing eighth in NCAA Division II. The Bisons were second nationally in passing offense.
"This is a great opportunity for Coach Perry and his family," said Harding head coach Ronnie Huckeba. "In his two years, he has been a blessing to our program here at Harding and has had a tremendous impact of the lives of the players he has coached. We will miss him and wish him the best at Nashville."
Perry is a 1980 graduate of Harding and earned All-Conference honors as a senior wide receiver in 1979.
