After three successful seasons at Southeast Bulloch, head coach Barrett Davis has announced he is leaving SEB to take over as the head coach at Evans High School in Columbia County.The Harlem, GA native admits one of the reasons for taking the job was to be closer to his family as well as other private reasons.“We love the Statesboro area and have a lot of great things here, but Augusta has always been home,” said Davis. “It’s not something I was necessarily looking to do, but after some prayer and things lining up, I decided it was the best thing for our family. Parents and grandparents getting older you just want to be around them as much as you can.”Southeast Bulloch has a 21-11 record in Davis’ three seasons.
