One of the most respected people among Mississippi’s junior college ranks is returning to the Scooba campus, as former East Mississippi Community College standout quarterback and head football coach Dr. Randall Bradberry has been hired as the school’s athletic director. The announcement was made Thursday by EMCC President Dr. Thomas M. Huebner Jr.
Bradberry, a native of Sturgis, was an All-Star signal caller for Hall of Fame football coach Bob “Bull” Sullivan during the 1967 and 1968 seasons and later returned to East Mississippi for a successful 12-year stint (1976-87) as the Lions’ head football coach. During his second stop on the Scooba campus, Bradberry also served as EMCC’s director of athletics while adding responsibilities as the college’s dean of students and briefly serving as the school’s interim president before departing in 1988 for Copiah-Lincoln Community College.
“I look forward to once again having the opportunity to be a part of the East Mississippi Community College family," Bradberry said. "This school has been a part of my life since I walked on campus as a student in the fall of 1967. I have so many fond memories of being a student here, living and working here, my children being born here, and having known the people that make up this great community.”
