Head Coach John Griffin

coach john griffin-boys trackJohn Griffin is no stranger to the FPD campus, having served as an assistant coach from 1996-2002 for the girls and boys basketball programs.

After his time at FPD, Griffin served as head girls basketball coach at GMC from 2003-2012.

The 2018-19 season will be his fifth year leading the Lady Vikings basketball team.

In the 2016-17 season, Griffin paced the Lady Vikings to an 18-7 record, including an 8-2 record in Region-7 play. FPD advanced to the GHSA Class-A Private Sweet 16 before falling to Prince Avenue.

His Lady Vikings finished the 2015-16 season at 14-13 (6-5 Reg. 7-A) and advanced to the GHSA Class-A Private State Tournament. In 2014-15, Griffin’s squad was 6-16 in a rebuilding campaign.

Experience is not an issue for Griffin, who previously spent time as a head coach at John Hancock from 1981-1983.

After his stint with the Rebels, Griffin moved to Milledgeville, Ga. where he led the Lady Bulldogs of GMC from 1985-1987 before returning again to FPD in 2003.

Griffin, who has served as head boys track and field coach and assistant middle school football and basketball coach for the past two years at FPD, taught in the Georgia public school system for 29 years.

He earned his bachelors and masters in education from Georgia College.

Griffin is married to his wife, Caroline. They have two children who graduated from FPD: Ashley (Class of 2004) and Jake (2005).
