Chapel to recommend head FB coach on Monday

Watson Chapel athletics director John Hayden confirmed that a recommendation on the school’s next head football coach will be given to the district’s school board at Monday night’s meeting.

“We’re going to recommend a head coaching candidate to our school board on Monday,” Hayden said Friday night.

Hayden declined to name the person the interview committee will recommend.

ArkansasVarsity.com reports the position has been offered to and accepted by Des Arc head coach Dustin Prescott, who led the Eagles to the 2A state championship game in December. The Commercial could not reach Prescott on Friday night.

Des Arc was routed, 60-0, by Junction City in the title game. The Eagles finished first in the 6-2A Conference and ended the season at 11-3.
