Montabella hires former Tawas football coach

TAWAS CITY, Mich. — Back in November 2019, Tim Webb decided to step down after coaching 14 seasons of varsity football at Tawas High School. Fast forward to now, he was able to land another coaching job elsewhere.

On Tuesday afternoon, Webb was approved by the Montabella Board of Education to be the school’s next varsity head coach. He will be coaching a Mustangs team that is coming off a 5-5 overall record last season, which includes a 48-0 loss to Johannesburg-Lewiston in a district semifinal game.

Last season, the Braves finished with a 4-4 record as they missed the playoffs by one win.

In Webb’s 14 seasons, he took the Braves to the postseason six different times, giving him a career record of 66-64 overall. However, it’s time for Webb and the Braves football program to go their separate ways.

For the Braves, the keys are now in the hands of Aaron Hazen, who is taking on his first head coaching challenge. Hazen has been apart of the program for the last two years as an assistant.
