JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – It’s a dream come true for Brian Miracle who was just hired as the new Campbell County High School Head Baseball Coach. A Campbell County native who grew up playing Cougar Baseball, Miracle said he had always dreamed of coming back to be head baseball coach in his hometown. He is a 2006 graduate of CCHS and has been playing baseball and dreaming of coaching it since he was in the eighth grade.

“I am so honored and humbled by the opportunity and so very excited to continue to work with the athletes in this capacity,” Miracle said. 

Miracle has been part of Cougar Baseball for the past decade, working as the assistant coach for eight years. He spent six of those years consecutively as the assistant coach, before going to Oneida to be their head coach in the 2018-19 school year. That was too much of a drive, especially when his heart was in Campbell County, so two years ago he came back as the assistant coach at CCHS.

“His interview was very impressive, and he was the clear cut choice. He’s a Campbell County man through and through,” said Matt Price, director of athletics at Campbell High. Price went on to say “Coach Miracle is a man of high integrity and character, and he has a passion for making a positive impact on students’ lives.”

For the past decade, Miracle has also organized and headed up the local Campbell County Fields of Faith event through the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He currently teaches at Caryville Elementary School. 

He said he is looking forward to working with the team as their new head coach.

Baseball season doesn’t start until spring, but workouts for the team will kickoff in the next few weeks.

“Cougar Baseball is a huge part of my life, and I’m just so blessed with this opportunity,” Miracle said. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 10/28/2021-6AM)
