Jenny Jarrett Returns To Bob Jones Coaching Ranks As Head Coach Of Volleyball Program

MADISON- On her resume, Jenny Jarrett indicates she’s a passionate, loyal and adaptable professional skilled in the field of coaching and teaching. In the school year of 2022-2023 she’ll get her chance to continue to prove her words as she’s been hired as head coach of the Bob Jones volleyball team and math teacher.

Jarrett replaces Cassie Mullinax who held the volleyball position for the past three seasons.

“I’m passionate about the game and I feel I connect well with the girls as I get them to play hard, for each other, the team and their school,” said Jarrett, who won the Class 1A state championship in 2002 as head coach in softball at Athens Bible School and was an assistant coach of Athens Bible’s volleyball program which also state titles in 2009 and 2014.

The 45-year-old Jarrett returns to Bob Jones after taking the reins as assistant at Athens High under head coach April Marsh, whom Jarrett followed in 2019 when Marsh, then head coach of Bob Jones, took the position in Athens. Jarrett was at Bob Jones as assistant coach from 2015-2019. During her tenure with the Patriots, she was head coach of the Discovery Middle School program for one season and led the junior varsity squad for two seasons at Bob Jones.

Prior to making it to Madison, Jarrett was at Athens Bible School in a variety of coaching positions from 1998 to 2015.

She grew up in the Athens area and played volleyball, basketball and softball at Athens Bible and later played two years of collegiate softball at Calhoun Community College in Decatur. Her and her husband, Brian, of 23 years met while playing co-ed softball and sparked a relationship right away. “We starting date and in some ways, we haven’t stopped since,” added Jarrett. They have three children ages 21, 19 and 16. The youngest will remain attending Athens High and play volleyball for the Golden Eagles.

Jarrett is also the head coach of the United 16 National team as part of the United Volleyball Club. For her splendid work she was named United’s Coach of the Year in 2021. She indicated she will forego her coaching the club sport for now but may look at returning in the future.

“I believe my forte is teaching the fundamentals as I coach throughout a match and very vocal with my players,” said Jarrett. “I worked well with April when I was here before and learned a lot from her here at Bob Jones and at Athens.

She will continue to teach math at Bob Jones in the next school year as she has a degree in mathematics from Athens State University.

Jarrett added, “I loved being at Bob Jones before and this opportunity is one I felt I couldn’t turn down, but it has been hard to say goodbye to Athens. I’m excited to get started as I’m all about working hard.”
