Todd Wofford, the offensive coordinator for Gainesville High’s football team and the head track coach at the school, will be named the head coach at Central Gwinnett on Monday night.

For Wofford, who spent five years with the Red Elephants, this will be his first job as a head football coach, and he’s looking forward to the opportunity.

“I see a lot of potential (at Central Gwinnett) that can be tapped into,” Wofford said. “Like Gainesville, they’ve got a lot of tradition from back in the day. Maybe not in the short term, but in three to four years, I can see it being one of the top schools in (Region 8-AAAAA).”

Wofford’s hiring will be announced at a special Gwinnett County School Board meeting Monday night, and he expects to be released from his Gainesville contract some time in February.

He’ll be replacing Ed Stokes, who went 5-15 in two seasons with the Black Knights. Central Gwinnett’s last playoff appearance came in 2006.

During Wofford’s tenure with the Red Elephants, he oversaw a prolific offense that averaged more than 36 points per game each of the last four seasons, peaking at 39.3 during last year’s run to the state championship game.

When reached Monday, Wofford spoke fondly of his time in Gainesville.

“I’ve been at a few schools before I came here, and I haven’t seen anything like Friday nights in Gainesville.”
