West Forsyth announced former Lanier offensive coordinator Shawn Cahill as its new head football coach on Wednesday.
Cahill had been at Lanier since 2011, including the past three seasons as offensive coordinator during which the Longhorns went 28-3 and won region championships in 2014 and 2015.
Cahill might have experienced his most success out of state, when he was offensive coordinator for Harvey High School in North Dakota that went 23-3 with two state championship appearances between 1996-97.
Cahill has coached 15 years in all, including stops at Duluth (2008-10), Newton (2006-07) and Santa Margarita (1994-95) in Mission Viejo, Calif.
Cahill replaces Adam Clack, who left to become head coach at Milton after three seasons in charge at West.
