Robinson, First Assembly name new football coaches

Jay M. Robinson and First Assembly announced the hiring of new football coaches this week.

Robinson, which was 3-8 last season, will be led by 26-year veteran John Fitz as the Bulldogs move to 4A this upcoming season to a league that also features A.L. Brown, Hough, Hopewell, North Meck, Mallard Creek, Vance and West Charlotte.

Fitz, who replaces the retiring Bobby Cloninger, coached for 20 years at New Hanover High in Wilmington before spending the last six years at Catawba College, where he served as assistant head coach, offensive coordinator and special team coordinator.

First Assembly will have a familiar face take over for first-year coach Cornelius Street. Craig Kean, who led the Eagles to the 2007 NCISAA Division II championship, will return to coach the team this fall.

Kean was offensive coordinator at Mount Pleasant and served as head coach at Hickory Grove Christian in Charlotte since leaving First Assembly.

The Eagles are coming off a 5-5 season and their sixth consecutive playoff appearance.

Kalif Phillips is hoping to make his own mark on Charlotte's fledgling football ... faced a tall task when he took over the Jay M. Robinson football program in January. tattica calcio
