Mays comes to Hurricane from South Charleston High School. He led the Black Eagles for nine seasons, amassing a 55-47 record. South Charleston qualified for the playoffs eight times during his tenure. They advanced to the Class AAA state championship game in 2014 with an 11-3 record and went 6-0 in 2020.
Mays replaces Jeremy Taylor at Hurricane. Taylor stepped down following the 2021 season after ten years leading the Redskins.
Nine teams statewide will welcome in new head coaches for the 2022 season.
