Peter McSparin is the new head football coach at Covenant Day School.

McSparin replaces Chris James, who led Covenant Day to a 6-5 record during the 2018 season. James told the Observer he has accepted a full-time position at Ardrey Kell High School and will be offensive coordinator for the Knights’ football team.

McSparin was previously associate head coach and defensive coordinator at Granville Central, a public 1A school in Stem, N.C. He was also offensive coordinator and head junior varsity coach at Rockingham County and co-offensive coordinator at Central Davidson High School.

At Covenant Day, McSparin will begin his coaching duties immediately and will teach high school physical education next fall.

“I am excited for the new energy and leadership that coach McSparin brings to Covenant Day, as he has accumulated experience not only in well-established programs, but also with programs in the building process,” said Covenant Day athletics director Sherry Kapelar. “His drive, excitement, and vision for the future of Covenant Day Football is contagious.

“Coach McSparin is also passionate about building the best athletes not only for the football program, but for all athletic programs at Covenant Day. His involvement as head strength and conditioning Coach will bring a year-round perspective to the program and provide opportunities for all athletes to benefit from his knowledge and experience preparing athletes for success.”
