Highly Successful Scales Finds New Coaching Home With Tigers

Booneville, Miss. - A long-standing relationship has aided a promising young coach in finding a new home at Northeast Mississippi Community College prior to the start of the 2016 campaign.

Chaz Scales has been named as an assistant coach for the four-time Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC) North Division champion Tigers.

“Chaz brings a plethora of knowledge at all positions offensively and defensively,” said Tigers headman Greg Davis. “We’re happy to have him on our staff because he’s a very intelligent coach and has a long line of playing experience.”

Scales got to know Northeast offensive coordinator Ryan Trevathan while the two were at Arkansas State University together as a student-athlete and coach, respectively. Trevathan approached him about joining the Tigers and he jumped on the opportunity.

“We were real good friends and kept in touch,” Scales said. “He told me that the position was open and I thought this would be a big point in my career to learn a little more football and just help me go ahead and reach a new stepping stone.”

Scales was a member of the Red Wolves program from 2009-12 and gained knowledge from outstanding coaches such as Hugh Freeze, who is now at the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss), and current Auburn (Ala.) University commander Gus Malzahn.

He was part of two consecutive Sun Belt Conference championship teams during his junior and senior campaigns. Those Arkansas State squads also accepted berths to the Mobile, Ala., based GoDaddy.com Bowl.

The Nashville, Tenn., native excelled at defensive back throughout his tenure with the Red Wolves. Scales had a team-high in pass break ups for a second straight season with seven in 2012.

Scales placed ninth on the squad with 45 total tackles, including 31 unassisted stops, in his final year at Arkansas State. He also had interceptions in games at the University of Oregon and the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

He had a season-high eight takedowns in a home victory over the University of Memphis (Tenn.). Scales completed his time with the Red Wolves with a pair of tackles in their GoDaddy.com Bowl win versus nationally ranked Kent State (Ohio) University.

Scales was also solid during his junior campaign at Arkansas State with 33 stops, including three of them for loss, with 11 pass break ups and one interception in 13 total outings.

He set a career-best mark for tackles in a single game that year with 10 in a triumph by the Red Wolves against the University of Louisiana at Monroe. He also picked off a pass in the 2012 GoDaddy.com Bowl versus Northern Illinois University.

Scales assisted Arkansas State in compiling winning streaks of nine games in 2011 and seven in a row to end the season during his final year on the Jonesboro, Ark., campus.

He participated in all 12 games for the Red Wolves as a true freshman in 2009. Scales recorded 10 tackles mainly as a special teams athlete, but also saw action at cornerback.

Scales earned the starting nod for the first time as a sophomore. He accumulated 17 total takedowns that campaign, including a season-high six tackles in a matchup with Troy (Ala.) University.

He was a standout player at Centennial (Tenn.) High School before his arrival at Arkansas State. Scales was selected to the Tennessee Sports Writers Association (TSWA) Class 5A All-State team following a senior season in which he accounted for 2,400 yards and 29 touchdowns as the quarterback for the Cougars.

Scales made his coaching debut in 2014 as a graduate assistant at the University of West Georgia. He lifted the Wolves to a stellar 12-3 overall mark and a semifinal appearance in the NCAA Division II Tournament.

West Georgia captured its inaugural playoff victory in school history during the first round at Tuskegee (Ala.) University. The Wolves went on to defeat Delta State University and Valdosta State (Ga.) University before succumbing to Colorado State University at Pueblo in their fourth playoff contest.

That West Georgia squad also finished tied for third in the rugged Gulf South Conference and posted a final ranking of No. 6 in the nation according to the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA).

Scales instructed safety Carlos Hutton, who was tabbed as a USA College Football All-American. Hutton topped the GSC with 13 passes defended and placed second in the league with four interceptions.

Two of his players in cornerback Laronji Vason and Hutton were also honored with All-GSC laurels. Vason notched 72 stops, two interceptions and two fumble recoveries while under the tutelage of Scales.

Scales moved to the southern half of the Peach State one year ago to become a graduate assistant at Valdosta State. He found success with the Blazers as well with nine victories and a NCAA postseason berth.

Valdosta State concluded the 2015 campaign at No. 14 in the AFCA poll and in a stalemate for third in the GSC. The Blazers defeated Carson-Newman (Tenn.) University in opening round competition before falling at West Georgia one week later.

Athletes that thrived under Scales’ watch included USA College Football All-American and All-GSC selection Kenny Moore. Moore had three interceptions with two of them resulting in touchdown returns.

“I hope to just bring pride and tradition here to Northeast and a lot of energy,” said Scales. “I want to help our athletes be men on and off the field. That’s a big thing I think kids need these days.”

Scales will transition from a defensive backs and special teams coach like he was at both Valdosta State and West Georgia to a running backs instructor during his initial season in the City of Hospitality.
