After a decade of success in central Mississippi, high school football coach Jeff Stockstill is heading to the Gulf Coast.

On Friday, the Pass Christian School Board of Trustees hired Stockstill as the new head coach for the Pass High Pirates.

“We are excited about Coach Stockstill coming in to help build our program,” Athletic Director Ricky Smith said. “He’s a proven winner and we are excited to watch him build a winning culture.  His expectations for his players on the field, in the classroom, and in the community are excellent and we are excited for him to be a Pirate.”

Winning back-to-back state championships with the Scott Central Rebels, Stockstill has accumulated a 63-19 record as a head coach, including a 28-2 record over the last two years.

After leaving Raleigh with a 29-12 record over three years, one district title, and being 5-3 in the 3A playoffs from 2014-2016, Stockstill took a position at Forrest County AHS in Brooklyn, Miss., for just one year finishing 6-5.

In Stockstill’s two years at Scott Central, they built a winning culture by dominating teams on the scoreboard, forcing 1329 points in two years, and allowing only 326.  Defensively, the Rebels had seven shutouts, including a 55-0 win over Philadelphia High School in the MHSAA 2022 2A quarterfinals.

“We would like to welcome Coach Stockstill and his family to Pirate Nation,” expressed Pass Christian Superintendent Dr. Carla Evers.  “We are excited about the future of our program with him at the helm.  He hit the ground running having met with the coaches and players to introduce himself.”

The new head coach has a wife, Haley, and two children, Ethan and AJ.  Stockstill officially signed the contract to be the Head Football Coach at Pass Christian High on Monday.

Stockstill fills the vacancy left by Chase Carmody, who recently stepped down and accepted the defensive coordinator position at Ocean Springs. Carmody led the Pirates to the MHSAA 4A playoffs the last two years, losing both in the first round and leaving with an overall record of 11-15.
