KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Former University of Tennessee offensive line coach Don Mahoney has been named the new head coach of the Webb School football team.
In addition to his football duties, Mahoney has also been named associate director of student-athlete development at Webb. Mahoney becomes just the second head coach in nearly four decades at Webb - as longtime coach David Meske announced his retirement following the 2022 season.

Mahoney got the seal of approval from Meske, too.
“Don brings a tremendous amount of coaching experience to Webb School,” Meske noted. “He is committed to the mission of our school and will help develop our student-athletes to their fullest potential. And as football coach, Don will be dedicated to making sure our players excel as student-athletes both on and off the field.”
