CCHS Hires Jonah Brannon as New Varsity Baseball Coach


Calloway County High School has hired Jonah Brannon as the new Laker varsity baseball head coach. Brannon replaces Travis Turner, who resigned after leading the Lakers for seven seasons. 

Brannon has served on the Laker baseball staff for two seasons as a varsity assistant and the head middle school coach. He also played for the Lakers in high school, along with playing college baseball at Murray State for four seasons.

Brannon plans to bring with him a passion for the game of baseball and a whole-person development attitude, focused on developing student-athletes as students, persons, players and eventual professionals, paving the way for life-success beyond graduation and baseball. 

“I am very appreciative of the Calloway County Schools administration for this awesome opportunity to become head baseball coach for the Laker baseball program,” said Brannon. “We have a proud past to uphold and an exciting future to mold. I would like to thank all of my former coaches for investing in me as a person first and foremost. They have all contributed in making me the man I am today. Special thanks to Coach Travis Turner for giving me the opportunity to come back home a couple years ago to Calloway County to begin my coaching career. We have a great group of talented players, but more than that, a great group of young men. I am very excited about helping develop them to their max potential on the field and leading them to be great young men off of it.” 

Brannon holds both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in agriculture and is employed as an instructor and a manager of the Arboretum/Pullen Farm at Murray State University. He and his wife Katie have a 4 month old son, Ramsey.
