Bladen school board to hold special meeting; West Bladen to have new football coach soon


ELIZABETHTOWN,NC (WWAY) -- The Bladen County School Board will hold a special session on Monday, February 20. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss personnel matters. We understand the board members will discuss the vacant head football coaching position at West Bladen High School.

Earlier this week the board did not approve the hiring of current Red Springs assistant coach Joe Salas. The vote was 4-3 against Salas. Some board members have been under scrutiny for not approving Salas. We understand his nomination will come up again on Monday. West Bladen athletics director Kim Cain is also in the running, but at this time Salas is expected to get the board approval.

Pat Byrd served as the West Bladen head football coach in 2010 and 2011. He was forced out shortly after the conclusion of the 2011 season.
