OXFORD – Mike Adams, who in 2010 was the youngest high school football head coach in the state of New Jersey and helped Parsippany High School in Parsippany, NJ, end a 31- game losing streak, was hired last week by Oxford High School to take over as its head football coach.
Adams, a graduate of Springfield College, will also be a Health and Physical Education teacher at the school. He replaces Jeff Parcells, who took over the Athletic Director position at Sutton High School.
The school also announced that Matt Tyrell, who has been hired as an Algebra teacher, will be one of Adams’s assistant coaches as the line coach. He is a graduate of the University of Rhode Island and is also a strength and conditioning coach.
“Coach Adams comes to us highly recommended by several college coaches so we are excited about that,” said Principal Kevin Wells. “He is in the process of shoring up the other three paid positions on the football staff.”
Adams will be in Oxford on July 9 when the team begins its strength and conditioning program for the fall.
