Coach Mitch Jordan Lands Win Number 100

Coach Mitch Jordan Lands Win Number 100

 

Congratulations to Coach Mitch Jordan on earning his 100th win as a varsity head football coach on Friday, October 29, during the MPC homecoming football game against North Cobb Christian School.  This year’s MPC Eagles football team (5-4, 2-1 in Region) heads into the last game of the regular season, having already secured a number-two seed in the playoffs.

Coach Jordan, who also serves as the MPCS athletic director, began his head coaching career at the school in 2008. During his 14-year tenure, he has led the Eagles to two Region championships, four Elite Eight appearances, and one Final Four appearance, culminating with an A-Private GHSA State Championship in 2014. 

He also has served as the school’s athletic director since 2010 and helped build the football program from the ground up in 2008. Recently, the school named its secondary turf football and lacrosse field “Jordan Field” to commemorate the legacy that Coach Jordan has left on Mount Paran Christian Athletics.   

Coach Jordan was named “Cobb County Coach of the Year” and received the “Bruce Cobleigh Coach of the Year” award in 2014. He also received the “Region Coach of the Year” award in 2017.

Along with these accomplishments, Coach Jordan has poured into the lives of hundreds of young men through the MPC football program and developed it into a respected program statewide. “Our players are the cornerstone of the football program,” he says. “We have had the opportunity to coach and share experiences with so many young men who have built the program into what it is today.”

“One hundred victories is a great milestone for our program,” says Coach Jordan. “We have been blessed to have outstanding administrative support. Dr. David Tilley (former head of school), Head of School Dr. Tim Wiens, and Mrs. Tawanna Rusk, assistant head of school, have been instrumental in the success of our athletic program. We have first-class facilities, and we are able to hire incredible assistant coaches that support the values and mission of our school.”

Congratulations, Coach Jordan!
