East, Notaro resign at Brookwood

THOMASVILLE — The Brookwood Warriors will have a new football chief next year.

After guiding the Warriors to a 3-8 season this fall, Robert East resigned as head football coach on Monday.

“Basically, the detail is I’ve elected to resign as head football coach, and I’ll be leaving the position of athletic director at the end of this year,” East said. “I do have plans to stay employed at Brookwood as long as possible as a teacher.”

In four seasons as Brookwood’s coach, East posted a 15-28 record.

“It was an extremely tough decision,” East said. “I believe in those kids. I believe in that we were getting better. I believe that they will continue to get better. Obviously, they’re going to be older and that will certainly help.

“I’ve been at Brookwood for 10 years as a football coach — six years as a defensive coordinator and four years as head coach — this is home for us. It was a very difficult decision.”

The Warriors finished with back-to-back five-win seasons in 2010-11 but struggled in 2012 due in large part to the team’s youth. Of the 35 players on the team’s roster, 26 were either freshmen or sophomores. Still, East felt the team had improved over the course of the season. It won two of its last three games to qualify for the GISA Class AA playoffs.
