BAYBORO, N.C. (WITN) - Pamlico County High School announced the promotion of David Perrine to lead the Hurricane football program Tuesday afternoon.

New Hurricane head football coach David Perrine was born and raised in Pennsylvania. He is married to his wife Patty and has two boys, Nick and Jake.

Prior to moving to Eastern North Carolina, they lived in Charleston, S.C. for three years from 2015-18. Not only is David Perrine an outstanding coach, but he is also a well-respected educator of exceptional children with over 29 years of experience.

Perrine was a Pennsylvania all-state running back in the mid-80′s and went on to play wide receiver at West Chester University.

Perrine began his coaching career in 1991 as assistant offensive and assistant defensive coach and has accumulated more than 15 years of varsity coaching experience.

This past season, Perrine held the position of defensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the Hurricanes. During that season, the Hurricanes had four players make first-team all-conference and quarterback Isaiah Godette was named Coastal Plains Offensive Player of the Year.

“I’m looking forward to coaching a great group of kids,” said Perrine. “We will look to build upon the foundation that Coach Cook is leaving. Pamlico is a great place to balance being a teacher and coaching sports. The athletic department, led by Earl Sadler, is terrific and very supportive.”

Pamlico County said it’s excited to welcome Perrine as its next head football coach. The Hurricanes added that they are confident in his ability to lead the football team and continue the success that the program has experienced.

Perrine takes over after Ron Cook stepped down to take over the head coaching duties at Farmville Central High School.
