Holmes Hires New Coach


Terry Liggin is out after two seasons as the head football coach at Holmes.

For the second time in less than three years the Holmes Bulldogs have hired a new football coach. Longtime assistant coach Ben Nevels has spent the last nine years with Holmes and Lloyd and now gets his opportunity to be a head coach as the school announced his hiring on Monday.

Nevels, a Simon Kenton graduate, played football at Campbellsville and Eastern Kentucky. He currently is a special education teaches at Holmes.

“I am blessed to have this opportunity,” Nevels said in a statement released by the school. “I am extremely excited about our future."

Nevels replaces Terry Liggin, who resigned earlier in the year. During Liggin’s two-year reign the Bulldogs finished with a 10-12 mark, including a 6-5 record a year ago.
