He coached, as assistant or head coach, 13 different teams that reached the state playoffs.

He has earned nominating points as the FACA/Dairy Farmers Coach of the Year in baseball and basketball and was honored in 2005 as the FACA Assistant Coach of the Year for his work with the Port St. Joe High School defense on the Tiger Sharks’ path to a state title in football.

Gannon has served as athletic director at the school while it won several state sportsmanship awards and had a rather unusual three-peat with the Tiger Sharks.
