Matt Anderson Leaving Marianna to Take Job at Lincoln HS

MARIANNA, Fla. - Matt Anderson is leaving his position as Head Basketball Coach at Marianna after two seasons.

He will be announced Wednesday afternoon as the new Head Coach at Lincoln High School in Tallahassee.

In his two seasons with the Bulldogs, Anderson compiled a record of 44-14, including 24-4 last season when Marianna made it to the 5A State Final Four.

Anderson also led the team through the Herman Williams tragedy, after the former Bulldog basketball player died during a pickup game in Marianna in June of 2016.

In a statement to News 13, he said, "I love Marianna and the time I spent here. I am looking forward to the challenges ahead of me at Lincoln, and what this next step means to me and my family."

Anderson has also coached at Graceville High School and at Malone High School where he won four State Championships in the mid-90s, and has won over 700 games across his JV and Varsity coaching experience. 

Whoever ends up taking over the Marianna coaching duties will be inheriting a program with a lot of expectations and talent, with much of the roster coming back from a team that made it to Lakeland this spring.

We will keep you updated as the coaching search unfolds.
