Jeremy Pruitt will serve as Armstrong High's interim football coach, activities director Glenn Anderson said.
Pruitt takes over for Korrey Davis, who left after one season (1-9) to become the coach at I.C. Norcom in Portsmouth.
Pruitt has been a football and basketball coach at Armstrong for the past four years. He played linebacker at Virginia State and was a preseason all-CIAA pick in 2011.
Also, former Armstrong and Norfolk State linebacker Nigel Chavis has signed with the Bismarck Bucks of the Indoor Football League.
The 6-foot-2 230-pounder was a two-time first-team all-MEAC pick at Norfolk State. He had 107 tackles as a senior and 315 tackles (37.5 for loss and 14.5 sacks) during his career. He was a second-team All-Metro pick at Armstrong.
