This is my 24th year of teaching and my 9th at Chapin High School. Over the years I have taught World Geography(CP and Honors), U.S. History, World History(CP, Honors and AP), Humanities I, Humanities II, Cultural Diversity, Street Law, Law Ed., Sports History, Sociology, Pyschology and Current Events/Issues.

This is my 23rd year coaching football with most of those years on the offensive side of the ball. I have coached Quarterbacks, Wide Receivers, Running Backs and Tight Ends. I have also coached Linebackers and Defensive Ends. I have been blessed to have had some tremendous athletes over my years including Darian Durant (retired from Canadian Football League), Tyler Thigpen (retired from the National Football League), and my own son, Logan Bailey, who was a SC Mr. Football finalist and owns many records here at Chapin High School. I also coached on teams that included Lawrence Timmons and Justin Durant, both former starting linebackers in the NFL.

Other coaching experience has included golf, track and baseball.



Most people are amused to find out just how broad of a range my interests include. I love everything to do with just about every sport, but I also love reading (crime, mystery and fantasy), gaming (Warcraft, Sims, Age of Empires, Titanfall) and music (everything from rap to Barbra Striesand). I always enjoy making banners or pep stuff for various games or events here at Chapin High School.

My favorite hobby is spending time with my family on the lakes (Santee and Murray) sunning, tubing and skiing, the slopes of Sugar Mountain, or the streets of Disney World!
