RADFORD, Va. (WDBJ) - Blacksburg native Michael Crist is returning home to be the new head football coach at Radford High School.

Crist, who spent the last eight years at Virginia High, was officially introduced Monday at the school and he says he can’t wait to get started with his new team.

“As much as anything, it was the community where my wife and I were excited about raising our kids, so that was first and foremost,” said Crist. “But, you look at the program as an outsider, I just have great respect for what Coach Lineburg built, what Coach Saunders continued and I think it’s a special place.”
