Darran Powell 'ecstatic' to be back as Dunbar's head football coach


DUNBAR -- Dunbar Head Coach Darran Powell will officially be back on the sidelines for the 2017 season after initially being told he would not be back for this season.

The controversy stems from an attempt to throw the week 10 football game between Dunbar and Belmont.

In June the school board did not renew Powell's contract.

But on July 11th the board revoted on his contract and in a 6-1 vote decided to bring him back.

Powell said he was ecstatic to be back.

His players also shared their excitement to have Powell back on the sideline too.
