Hoover offensive coordinator lands Georgia head coaching position

Alpharetta, GA – Hoover head football coach Josh Niblett will be replacing a key member of his offensive staff this offseason. PrepsNet has learned that Bucs offensive coordinator Jason Kervin has landed the head coaching post at metro Atlanta’s Alpharetta High School.

This will be Kervin’s first head coaching position. He served as an offensive assistant for the Bucs for seven seasons before being elevated to offensive coordinator prior to the 2015 season. During his time at Hoover he has helped lead the powerhouse Bucs to six state titles, seven region crowns and a 148-23 record overall with a 79-7 mark in region play.

Before joining Niblett’s Hoover staff, he spent four seasons as the offensive coordinator at Shelby Academy before serving as the Calera Eagles offensive coordinator for a pair of seasons where he helped guide the Eagles to the AHSAA semifinals.

Over 15 years in coaching, the Shelby County native has notched 11 state championships in Football, baseball and powerlifting.

Kervin replaces former Alpharetta head coach Jacob Nichols who resigned after leading the Raiders program for six seasons. The Raiders, who will be making the jump to Georgia 7A play in the fall, are coming off a 6-5 campaign in 2019.
