Glenbrook hires Chris Norton as coach

4008790Glenbrook has replaced head football coach Greg Tibbitt, who resigned last month, with former West Memphis Christian School head coach Chris Norton.

Norton coached at West Memphis for two years, going 4-6 and 5-5 with one playoff game. West Memphis had won a total of nine games in the five prior to Norton's arrival.

Norton will be reunited with Apache athletic director and head basketball coach Jeff Dalton. The two worked together at West Memphis, where Dalton hired Norton to coach football at WMC.

"He's a really good coach," Dalton said. "West Memphis was his first head job, and he did a great job. I hired him two years ago and he was real impressive in his first head job. I look for him to do a good job here. The players at WMC really respected him."

Dalton said his basketball players have already been asking him about Norton.

"I told them they would like playing for him," Dalton said. "He runs a very disciplined system, but he's also a lot of fun."

Norton was expected to be at the school this morning for his first meeting with the football team
