COVINGTON, Ga. — Earlier this week, Eastside High School relieved its head baseball coach, Brandon Davis of his duties. According to a statement sent to The Covington News by athletic director Philip Davidson, it wasn’t an easy decision to make. 

“Making a coaching change is always difficult,” Davidson said. “But after evaluating all areas of our baseball program, we believe that new leadership is best for the future of our program at this time.” 

Davis was in his first year at the helm of the Eagles’ program. Under his tutelage, Eastside went 8-16 overall with a 5-5 record in Region 8-AAAAA. 

Though Davis is no longer serving as the baseball team’s head coach, he remains in his role as a special education teacher at Eastside, Davidson said. 

“We appreciate coach Davis’ genuine commitment to our student-athletes whether that was on the field, in the classroom or as a mentor to young adults,” Davidson said. “We certainly wish him and his family all the best moving forward.” 

Assistant coach Ashley Senn has been promoted to finish the season as the Eagles’ interim head coach and Eastside has posted the job opening online for the 2022-23 school year.

Currently, Eastside is 8-17 with a 5-7 region record. It has two games remaining on this year's schedule both with Loganville. The first game will be on the road Monday, April 18 and the season finale will be at home on Wednesday, April 20. 

“We at Eastside are committed to building a winning program and honoring our tradition of success on the baseball field,” Davidson said. 

Davis declined to comment for this story.
