North Mecklenburg has selected a former Tennessee player and alumnus to serve as its new head football coach

The new head coach of North Mecklenburg High School is a former football star who has been chosen to lead the team.

Next fall, Daryl Vereen will step in to take over as the new coach for the Vikings, replacing Damon McKee. McKee, who coached the team for four seasons, had an overall record of 18-20. The team finished last season with a 5-6 record.

During his time in high school, Vereen was recognized as a second-team All Charlotte Observer pick in 2006 and was a four-year letterman. In his senior year, Vereen led Mecklenburg County in rushing with 2,603 yards and 31 touchdowns, and as a junior, he still managed to rush for 1,201 yards and 16 touchdowns despite missing four games due to injury.

Vereen played on North’s 2005 state championship basketball team and the 2006 team that finished as state runner-up.

In 2007, he redshirted at Tennessee and then went on to start seven out of 10 games as a redshirt freshman, earning a spot on the SEC All-Freshman team. Vereen spent four years playing at Tennessee.

Vereen was an assistant at North Mecklenburg last season.
