Mark Barnes hired as Crest football coach

Longtime Scotland County coach Mark Barnes will take over the football team at Boiling Springs Crest.

Barnes, who is 170-81 in his 21-year head coaching career, replaces Roy Kirby, who is leaving to become defensive coordinator at Dutch Fork (S.C.) under head coach Tom Knotts. Knotts resigned his job at Independence earlier this year to become head football coach at the S.C. school.
