St. John also went on to attain an MBA from Liberty University in 2010 . St. John began his teaching and coaching career at Linkhorne Middle School in Lynchburg, VA. After a three year stint at the middle school level he moved to Roanoke, VA to become the head JV coach at Patrick Henry High School. After his first year at Patrick Henry (with a record of 16-2), he was promoted to varsity assistant. In 2006, St. John moved to Charleston, SC and accepting the head JV position at James Island High School. Coach St. John led James Island to Region 7 titles in two of his three years, compiling a record of 43 wins and 19 loses. In 2009, St. John accepted the varsity head coaching position at William Campbell High School in Gladys, VA. Prior to St. John’s arrival, the program had only earned four appearances to the Regional Tournament in its 34 year history. In his four years there, St. John’s teams earned three regional bids. In May of 2013, Hopewell High School named St. John as their varsity Head Men’s Basketball Coach. In his brief time at Hopewell, St. John’s teams had a combined record of 34-17, winning the 2014-2015 Central District title and advancing to the Virginia State Final Four. He and his wife Channing are excited about living in Raleigh and being an integral part of Athens Drive High School community.
