Central Methodist Alum Kole Hinton Set for First Head Coaching Job at Fayette

Former Central Methodist football player Kole Hinton is set for his first head coaching job as he leads the Fayette Falcons onto the gridiron this fall. Hinton explains how this opportunity came about.

After his playing days at CMU, Hinton served as an assistant coach at his alma mater of Battle High School in Columbia for one year. He followed that with four years as an assistant at Hickman and then completed the circuit of Columbia public schools this past season by serving as Rock Bridge’s offensive coordinator. Hinton says he’s done his homework on the Falcons.

Hinton inherits a Fayette program that went 6-5 this past season. He says he expects some growing pains early on.

Building that strong foundation is vital to Hinton’s vision for Fayette football.

Hinton’s Rock Bridge offense averaged 36 points-per-game this past season on the way to a 9-3 record. He takes over for Mike Thompson at Fayette who went 29-16 during his four-year tenure.
