Rob Hinson returns home.
Camden High School named the 1989 graduate its new football coach at a meeting of the Board of Education on Tuesday night. Hinson replaced Dwayne Savage, who on February 10 took up Catholic work in Camden.
Hinson helped rebuild Timber Creek into the South Jersey Power Station from 2006 to 2019, leading the Chargers to a record of 114-43, 7 conference titles, 7 section finals and 4 South Jersey championships.
For the past two years, Hinson has worked as a personnel analyst at Rutgers.
Hinson, who was a corner defender for the Panthers, is taking over the program, which over the past decade under Savage has gone 71-31 and reached three section finals.
Camden’s only sectional name appeared in 1976.
