Former Cedartown High School standout football player Joey King will be the new head football coach at nearby Cartersville High School. King is leaving his job as the offensive coordinator for the Carrolton High School Trojans. King has been a member of the Trojan coaching staff for the past six years. The Trojans made two trips to the state championship game while King was on staff.

King graduated from CHS in 2001 and then went on to play football at Carson-Newman.
