In the wake of Rick Jones recent announcement of departing Greenwood School District leaving a vacancy in the head football coach position, the school board voted unanimously tonight to hire Chris Young in a special meeting.
Young is a familiar face and one who also knows the role and tradition within the Bulldog organization. His support was easily recognized among staff, athletes, and community.
“I am beyond excited about this opportunity, and it’s time to go to work!”
Chris Young, Greenwood High School Head Football Coach
“The task was given to us to find someone who could carry on the tradition found here at Greenwood. Coach Young is the person to do just that.”
Dr. Dustin Smith, Director of Athletics
Young is a 1995 graduate of Northside High School and received a BSE from the University of Central Arkansas and a Masters in Educational Leadership from Harding University. He has been teaching at Greenwood High School since 2000 and is currently the Assistant Principal and Assistant Football Coach at Greenwood High School.
