ANDERSON COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – Wren High School has a new head football coach.

Anthony Frate told his Hillcrest team Thursday morning he was taking the top job at the Anderson County school.

Wren confirmed the announcement Thursday afternoon. It still needs school board approval, which is expected later this month from Anderson District One.

Frate was defensive coordinator at Wren in 2017 and 2018, serving under Jeff Tate, who stepped down last month after guiding Wren for the past decade-and-a-half.

Frate went 26-12 in four seasons guiding Hillcrest with two region first place finishes.
