Familiar face at Bullitt East
Bullitt East has filled the football coaching vacancy left when Mike Settles moved to Lincoln County with a name many local football fans will recognize. The Pioneer News of Shepherdsville reports that Doug Preston, a former assistant coach at two area schools who has spent the last two seasons as head coach at Western.
Preston was 14-9 at Western, and prior to that he was 10-20 in three seasons at Rowan County. Ironically, his first job in high school coaching was as an assistant at Lincoln. He later worked on the staff at Danville.
Meanwhile, Settles has spread the word that he is looking for an offensive coordinator for the Lincoln staff.
