DUBLIN, NC (WWAY) — Pat Byrd is out as West Bladen High School head football coach. The Knights ended their season Friday with a 1-9 record. The lone win came against winless South Robeson early in the season.

Over the course of his two seasons at West Bladen Byrd sported a record of 4-16. Byrd served as head coach at West Columbus prior to his tenure at West Bladen.

“There was a mutual agreement between me and the principal,” Byrd said in a text message to WWAY. “Neither one of us was happy with the direction of the program. The principal wanted a change.”

Toni Warrick has been the principal at West Bladen for three months.

Byrd added that he looks forward to spending more time with his wife and three daughters. He’s also excited about being an assistant football coach again.
