Christ Church Episcopal School announced Friday that head football coach Don Frost is retiring after 11 seasons.
Frost guided the Cavaliers to four consecutive state titles from 2011 to 2014 and led the Cavaliers to a state record 55 consecutive wins and a 110-25 record.
“It has been a great 11 years, and we’ve been very blessed to have accomplished what we’ve accomplished. In my opinion, it couldn’t have been done without everyone buying into the philosophy and culture. It was never about the championships or winning streak— it was about getting kids prepared to be Godly men and to make life choices through the lessons taught by the game of football,” Frost said in a school release.
“I’m blessed to be here,” Frost told 7 Sports Friday afternoon.
“You go through triple bypass surgery, there are things that we can not predict, understand, but what we can do is we can move on from one thing to the next. God has me here for a reason, now I’ll find out what that next job is. I hope it still has something to do with teaching kids. There are a lot of things out there, I just feel blessed to still be on this Earth, to still be working,” Frost said, alluding to a recent medical procedure.
“I look forward to spending more time with my family,” Frost added.
In 17 seasons as a head coach, Frost posted a career record of 137-64, guiding Riverside for six seasons before arriving at CCES.
Assistant coach Tommy Bobo will now guide the Cavaliers. Bobo has been on the CCES staff the past five seasons and previously was head coach at Wren and Union County.
“I am truly honored to be here today and am so appreciative to Dr. Kupersmith and Coach Miller for the faith they have in me to lead this team,” Bobo said in a CCES release.
