After moving from Centennial to be the new head man at Father Ryan, Brian Rector has two of his assistants joining him on the Fighting Irish sideline. Wade Privett and Brett Taveau have joined Father Ryan’s football program as defensive and offensive coordinators, respectively. Last season, Rector, Privett, and Taveau helped to lead Centennial to a 5A state semifinals appearance and 12-2 record.
Privett has been part of the Williamson County teaching and coaching community since 2010, serving as the assistant football coach at Ravenwood High School before joining Centennial as the athletic director and assistant football coach in 2012. He is a graduate of UT-Martin and earned his Master’s in Teaching from Lipscomb University.
Taveau has been a teacher and an assistant coach at Centennial High since 2011. He earned his Bachelors from the University of Missouri and his Master of Arts in Teaching from the University of Central Missouri. Both will be joining the Father Ryan faculty in the social sciences department.
“Wade and Brett have had success at some of the top high school football programs in Tennessee,” said Father Ryan athletic director Pat Lawson. “That experience is a valuable addition to Irish football, one that gives our team a level of teaching that enhances our football program. We are pleased to welcome them to our community and to the coaching tradition at Father Ryan.”
Father Ryan High School provides college preparatory education along with spiritual and community service experiences to 945 students in grades 9-12. Last year, Ryan’s graduating class received over $24 million in scholarship offers and currently attend 71 institutions in 36 states. More information is available at www.fatherryan.org.
