  • Cartersville High School principal Shelley Tierce announced to the Cartersville City School Board the promotion of Conor Foster to replace Joey King as the Cartersville High School head football coach. Since 2014, Foster has served as the CHS varsity football defensive coordinator and also as a teacher and weight training coordinator at Cartersville Middle School. During Foster’s 14 years of coaching, he has gained experience as a defensive coordinator, safeties coach, junior varsity head coach and varsity quarterback coach. Tierce said, “We have such confidence in the strength of our program and the qualifications of our coaching staff, we felt it was more than appropriate to initially look within for Coach King’s replacement. Coach Foster has a long record of coaching accomplishments, but one of his best qualities, in my opinion, is his passion for developing student-athletes into strong individuals capable of success both on and off the playing field.” Foster’s wife, Kim, is a teacher at Cartersville High School and the couple has two children.
