Tonight we welcomed into the program one of our good friends and frequent guest of SportsTalk, David Bennett. Bennett is the former head football coach at Coastal Carolina, and recently accepted a job as the athletic director and head football coach at the newest high school in Lexington, River Bluff High, following a stint as the AD at Socastee High School this past year.

Bennett is no stranger to building a football program from scratch. As the inaugural head coach at Coastal Carolina University, he knows how to start with nothing and turn it into a winner. We discussed with Coach the biggest differences in coaching at the college and high school levels, what it’s like to actually have to start from scratch (a year with no varsity for instance), and scheduling, amongst other things. Bennett took us down memory lane to prove he’s no stranger to coaching kids as well.
