New Bern High School Has New Football Coach

At a press conference Tuesday afternoon, it was announced Bobby Curlings will take over for former New Bern High School football coach Chip Williams. Williams retired after last season but had thought about returning. Curlings was the offensive line coach under Williams during the Bears three state championship appearances. Curlings says he didn't decide without consulting Williams first. Curlings says at first he turned the position down, but reconsidered after speaking with the principal and Williams.
