Matt Rossman

CHS Cross Country Coach

"I was born and raised in Johnson City, TN, where I played Baseball and Golf at Science Hill High School. I graduated from East Tennessee State University in 2003 where I met my wife Becca. We have two incredible children that are in the 10th and 6th grade. We moved to Manchester in 2012 to pursue a call to Student Ministry at a local church. We have lived in Manchester since that time, except for a short stint in Greensboro, NC.
 
Although I was not a runner in High School, I grew a love for the sport in my adult years. I have competed in many races over the years from the 5k to Half-Marathon distance. I am excited to bring my passion for the sport of Running and my years of experience working with students in a Ministry setting, to the cross Country program at Coffee County. It is my desire to help develop great young athletes that excel on the field, but more importantly, incredible young men and women that will be leaders in their school and community.

I’m a proud 1997 graduate from Coffee County Central High School.  After graduation, I headed towards Freed Hardeman University to play collegiate golf and major in Business Marketing.  After graduating in 2001 and getting married to Amanda Shelt Costello, I began working at Comdata for a year in Brentwood, TN.  Once I realized my passion wasn’t in Marketing, my wife and I decided to move to her hometown in Stuart, FL where I could take part in a program called "Transition to Teaching".  Since I had a minor in mathematics from FHU, I was able to clep a couple of tests and become certified to teach math at the high school level.  After 3 years in Florida in the classroom, we moved back home to Manchester, TN in order to start our family.  We have been blessed with 2 boys and 1 girl; Blake, Noah, and Kayleen.  Since we’ve been back in Tennessee, I have taught math at CCCHS for the past 16 years.  In May 2011, I graduated from Tennessee Tech University with a Master’s in Instructional Leadership and have taken and passed the Administrator’s test.  I am now in my second stint coaching golf at CCCHS and also serve the school as the Co-Athletic Director.  I love this community, I have a passion for the classroom and athletics, and I love to see students excel.
