Bryant named state's top coach

Published: Sunday, January 5, 2014 at 01:40 PM.

Bryant coached at Greene Central before taking over the Havelock program in 2008. He has guided the Rams to five straight eastern regional title games, winning the last three. Bryant has a 79-11 coaching record at Havelock High.

“Building an elite level program takes high-quality coaches and high-quality kids,” Bryant said. “Our kids hang out together. They are brothers. No one sees black, white, Latino or Asian. They just see Havelock football players.”

Bryant said he appreciated the support of Havelock Principal Jeff Murphy, the faculty and staff at the school and the community for supporting the football team.

“I just thank the Lord. He closed a door on me at Greene Central but opened up a great window at Havelock,” he said. “Dr. Murphy has let me hire these great assistants and our administration really supports the program.”
