Corner Yellow Jackets name new head football coach

Dora, AL – Two weeks after parting ways with former head football coach Zac Willis, the Corner Yellow Jackets have found their next leader on the gridiron.  The Jefferson County School Board officially approved Clay-Chalkville assistant Jon Clements as the next Jackets head coach Thursday morning.  

Willis lead his alma mater for six seasons compiling a 28-35 record including three playoff births.  

The Jackets are coming off a 5-6 2017 campaign and two consecutive trips to the postseason. 

Clements spent last season as an offensive assistant at Clay-Chalkville, helping lead the Cougars to an 11-3 record and a trip to the AHSAA 6A semifinals.  Before joining Drew Gilmer’s staff at Clay, the Jemison native served as offensive coordinator at Pinson Valley. 

Corner joins Gardendale, Minor and Helena as metro area programs who named new head football coaches Thursday.
