Vance High football coach Aaron Brand is leaving for a job in South Carolina.

Brand, 43, will become head coach at Irmo High School, a position that will nearly double his salary.

“It’s a golden opportunity and it’s never a perfect time to leave,” he said, “but I was always told to leave it better than how we found it. I think we did that.”

Brand just finished his fifth season at Vance and led the Cougars to their first state championship game last fall.
