Scott Chadwick would like everyone to know his Evans house is on the market -- has been for a while.
And he'd desperately like to sell it and move on to the next phase of his life.
Chadwick, who resigned as Greenbrier High School's football coach and athletic director in December, was introduced as the head football coach at Marvin Ridge High School, in the Charlotte, N.C., suburb of Waxhaw on May 30.
Chadwick said he had planned to take a break from football for a couple years after his resignation. But after realizing he definitely wanted to coach again, Chadwick decided to take a job now rather than have his children move schools again two years down the road.
"It's a lot like Greenbrier," Chadwick said. "It's a great place to live. There are great kids here."
The Wolfpack forfeited two games in 2007 and the school was fined $1,000 for using ineligible players. Chadwick resigned and in January took a job at Panther Creek High School in Cary, N.C. There he worked as an intervention coordinator, counseling pupils who needed to pass graduation exams. He lived with his uncle.
"It was something to get me by and to get me out of the situation at Greenbrier," Chadwick said.
When the job at Marvin Ridge opened, Chadwick was notified by Nathan Kmiciak, an assistant at nearby Hickory Ridge High School.
Kmiciak was Chadwick's defensive coordinator when they coached at Henry E. Lackey High School in Maryland.
The Marvin Ridge Mavericks may employ a different style of football than the one witnessed by Greenbrier fans last season.
Chadwick said the Mavericks have a strong running back that he'll build his team around him rather than the spread offense the Wolfpack ran last season.
Chadwick met with Marvin Ridge principal Bill Cook on May 29, and was introduced to players and parents. The former Wolfpack coach said he was up front with Cook and the school's search committee about how he left Greenbrier.
"I think it's always good for people to hear it from you," Chadwick said. "I think people appreciate the honesty."
Greenbrier athletic director Garrett Black, who has kept in touch with Chadwick since replacing him as AD, said he was glad to hear Chadwick was back in football.
"I knew another opportunity would pop up for him," Black said. "I'm glad it has. I wish nothing but the best, success-wise, for coach Chadwick."
Chadwick's family has lived in Evans since his resignation. He's hoping to sell his house there and have his family join him in Waxhaw.
"Going back to November, it's been a long seven months for us," Chadwick said.
"We're anxious to get back together and start new in Charlotte."
