Buck James Leaving Hornet Football Program

Former Hornet Head Coach Buck James informed the superintendent at 10:20am on Tuesday morning that he was leaving the district to take the Head Football Coach position at Conway Public Schools.

“While we were surprised to learn of this development, we wish Coach James the best moving forward. Under his leadership, the staff and teams at Bryant High School achieved unprecedented success in the history of Arkansas high school sports,” said Dr. Karen Walters, Superintendent.

Coach James has served as Head Coach for the Hornets since 2016. During his tenure, the Hornets captured five consecutive 7A State Football Championships. 

“To our current and future members of the Hornet Football program, we are committed to finding a proven leader to continue our winning tradition. Our program will attract top coaching candidates. Our future is bright,” said Walters.
