Hammett, who spent four seasons as Rocky Mount's head football coach, was last a head coach at Oxford Webb.
But Hammett made a career change. He decided to go into the administrative side of education and was serving as an elementary school assistant principal in Granville County.
At end of last month, he accepted the head football coaching job at Granville Central High School - a relatively new high school that enters its third year of varsity football this fall. He replaces Don Colgan at the post.
Hammett made a return to Rocky Mount as Webb's head coach in the Warriors' second round 2008 NCHSAA 3-A state playoff game against the Gryphons. RMHS prevailed 48-14.
