Northeast has added former Live Oak football coach Barry “Tut” Musemeche and longtime Amite girls basketball coach Joe English to its coaching staff.
Musemeche was originally set to be a coordinator at East St. John this fall. He will be the offensive coordinator for the Class 2A Vikings. English, who had a string of playoff appearances at Amite, will be Northeast’s girls basketball coach and also will be an assistant football.
The addition of Musemeche is a reunion of sorts. Musemeche was an assistant to NHS coach David Masterson when Masterson was football coach at Tara in the 1990s.
