Arnoult named MCHS head football coach

NEWBERRY — Chris Arnoult has been named the head football coach and athletic director at Mid-Carolina High School, after being approved by the Newberry County School Board Monday night.

After spending more than 20 years as a football player and assistant coach at Irmo High School, he became the head football coach at Chesterfield High School in 2014. As head coach, he won 28 games in four years and in 2015 his team won the 4-AA Region Championship. This past season his team had a 9-3 record.

Arnoult was born in Tennessee and moved to Irmo in the late 1970’s with his family. After high school he played at Georgia Southern as an offensive lineman and was a member of the Georgia Southern University Eagles’ 1989 and 1990 National Title Teams.

He would go on to become an assistant in 1993 at Cumberland University, before returning to Irmo where he has been the last 20 seasons as an offensive line coach. Later on, he would take on the duties of co-offensive coordinator.

Arnoult received his master’s degree from Cumberland University.

Arnoult was a part of eight region championship teams and three state runner-up teams at Irmo, a Class 4A school as a position coach and coordinator, before he became the head football coach at Chesterfield High School.
