One of the area’s best big-school programs since the mid-1970s, Centerville was 5-5 last fall after an 0-2 start. It was the second straight season the Elks missed the Division I playoffs. Centerville was 10-1 under Roberts in 2014.
Brent Ullery becomes the fourth Centerville football coach since 1973, following Bob Gregg (1973-1999), Ron Ullery (2000-13) and Roberts. Ron Ullery has been an offensive line coach at Springboro since not being renewed as the Centerville coach.
“I am very excited to have Brent Ullery as our new head football coach,” Centerville athletic director Rob Dement said in a release. “I am confident that Brent will take the pieces that are currently working and combine those with the traditions that have made Centerville football such a great program. Brent also brings to the table a unique understanding of what ‘Elk Pride’ means to the great alumni of this program.”
