“I’m most excited about this opportunity because Maranatha is a great institution,” said Arrington. “Coach Bogan did a heck of a job and built a strong foundation. I’m looking forward to continuing the football legacy at Maranatha”.
Arrington takes over for Steve Bogan, who resigned after four seasons and an overall record of 27-17-1.
Arrington becomes the second high-profile player to become a high school football head coach in the last week. In Colorado, former Denver Broncos wide receiver Ed McCaffrey is the new head coach at Valor Christian.
