Apparently the itch is still there. Former Alexander Central Football coach Nick Bazzle had decided to interrupt his retirement and return to coaching. Bazzle has been named the new head football coach at North Lincoln High School.
Bazzle spent three seasons in Taylorsville beginning in 2012. His teams reached the post-season in 2012 and 2013 but went 4-7 and 3-8 the last two years. Bazzle stepped down and Butch Carter took the coaching job in Taylorsville. Bazzle admitted numerous time he was not ruling out returning to the sidelines. He actually lended assistance to the Cougar Football Program during his “retirement” and attended most games.
Coach Bazzle will take over a program that went 2-9 last season under Steven Pack who took the job at Newton Conover. Bazzle and the Knights will host Alexander Central on September 7th in a non-conference game.
