Lower Richland’s search for a new football coach will last a little longer.
Richland 1 athletics director Bob Matz said Tuesday the school is re-opening the position, and it’s unclear when a hire would be made. Spring football begins on May 2.
The job has been open since January when Darryl Page stepped down after three seasons. The Diamond Hornets went 2-8 this past season.
Ridge View assistant coach Derek Howard, as well as former NFL player and Lower Richland grad Jonathan Goodwin, were among those who interviewed for the job.
