Fuquay-Varina hires Jeb Hall as its football coach

Fuquay-Varina High’s former football defensive coordinator Jeb Hall has been named head coach at the school.

Hall joined former Bengals coach Dave Riggs’ staff in 2004 and replaces Ryan Habich as head coach. Habich left for Boone’s Watauga High School last month.

The Bengals were among Wake County’s most successful programs under Habich, going 50-14 in five seasons and claiming at least a share of three conference titles.

“Jeb has been a big part of our success in recent years,” said Fuquay Athletic Director James Mountford. “When you have had that type of success, I think you should look into the current staff first.

“There is no question in my mind that Jeb will motivate and inspire our students to work extremely hard on the field and in classroom. He is one of the hardest-working people I have ever met. I’ve very pleased we have him as our new coach.”

Habich said Hall is “a great person, role model and coach.”

Fuquay will begin play in the newly-named Southwest Wake Athletic Conference next year with Apex, Athens Drive, Cary, Green Hope, Holly Springs, Middle Creek and Panther Creek. The head football coach with the longest tenure among those schools is Green Hope’s Kwame Dixon, starting his third season in fall.
