Keenan will be without head coach Sean Gilley when it begins its season Friday.
Gilley has been suspended for the season opener against Newberry. He also wasn’t allowed to coach in two jamborees over the weekend. Keenan lost to Swansea 7-6 on Friday and 14-0 to Dreher on Saturday.
Ernest Logan coached the team in the jamboree and will be the head coach Friday against Newberry. Gilley isn’t allowed to attend any practices but will return for the second game against Fairfield Central.
Gilley and Richland One Athletic Director Bob Matz said they wouldn’t comment on the situation because it’s a personnel matter.
