Sherwood High School on Tuesday announced the hiring of its new head football coach. Chris Grier, a 2000 Sherwood graduate, has been hired to take over the football program at his alma mater.
“It’s an honor,” said the 30-year-old Silver Spring resident. “It’s kind of surreal. I’m real excited. It’s something I value and to carry on the tradition of Sherwood football certainly means a lot.”
Grier, the DeMatha freshman head coach since 2011, replaces Mike Bonavia who resigned last month to accept an administrative position at Einstein. Bonavia compiled a 15-7 record in two seasons at the helm including a 9-3 mark last year.
The Olney native began his coaching career in 2007 as the varsity offensive line coach and junior varsity head coach at Herricks High School in Long Island, New York.
