POPLARVILLE, Miss. — Pearl River head football coach Ted Egger has announced his staff for the 2019 season.
The Wildcats' sideline will feature three new faces next season with the additions of Garrett Kreamer, Michael Mosby and Ta'Ron Sims; Kreamer will coach receivers, Mosby will coach running backs and Sims will lead the defensive backs. Several returning coaches have also received promotions ahead of the 2019 season.
"We're excited about the direction we're going and the guys we have in place," said Pearl River head coach Ted Egger, who's entering his third season at the helm of the program. "It's a great staff with awesome continuity that's working well together."
Kreamer joins Eggers' staff after spending the last three seasons at Tyler Junior College in Tyler, Texas. Kreamer served as quarterbacks and receivers coach at TJC in addition to recruiting coordinator the past two seasons. He was also the defensive backs coach in 2016.
Prior to arriving at Tyler, Kreamer climbed the ranks at Louisiana-Lafayette under the guidance of then-head coach Mark Hudspeth. Kreamer joined the staff in 2012 as a receivers student assistant, a position he manned from 2012-14. Kreamer then coached the outside linebackers as a graduate assistant in 2015 and moved to a defensive backs grad assistant in the spring of 2016 before moving on to Tyler.
"We went through an exhaustive search and he was a guy who stood out for what we're looking for. He did a great job in the interview. He has a lot of knowledge, is a detail oriented guy and works hard. He has fit really well with what we're doing," Egger said. "He has been in this role before, has come in and our guys have really taken to him. It's like he's been here the whole time."
Mosby brings a well-rounded background to the PRCC running backs job. A Mississippi native, Mosby returns to the Magnolia State after spending a season at Louisburg College in Louisburg, North Carolina. There, Mosby was the defensive backs coach and special teams coordinator in addition to other responsibilities. His DBs pulled in 18 interceptions that season, ranking seventh nationally. Prior to his year at the NJCAA Independent program, Mosby was the assistant defensive backs coach and special teams coach at Mississippi Gulf Coast in 2017.
Prior to getting into coaching full time, Mosby was a student assistant at MGCCC in from 2013-15, working primarily with linebackers. He then moved on to be a student assistant at Mississippi State, working with the linebackers and safeties from 2015-17.
"Michael comes highly recommended and has a ton of experience," Egger said. "He's a Mississippi guy and will do a great job."
Sims joins the Pearl River staff after spending the last six seasons in various roles at Hattiesburg High School.
A native of Holly Springs, Sims walked on at Southern Miss, where he was a safety from 2005-06. Sims got his start in coaching at East Marion High School in Columbia, Miss., where he coached linebackers and defensive backs from Jan. 2011-Aug. 2012.
Sims began coaching at Hattiesburg in 2013 and helped transform the Tigers into a perennial powerhouse. Sims' primary responsibility at HHS was defensive backs and pass coverage coordinator. Last season, after a second straight undefeated regular season at HHS, six of Sims' defensive backs made the All-Region 4-5A team.
"Ta'Ron's a very detailed guy with high energy who takes pride in his position," Egger said. "He comes very recommended and coached in a great Hattiesburg program under Coach Tony Vance. He has had a lot of success. He's a talented young coach and it was really a no brainer to add him to our staff."
