Fayetteville High School has named a new head football coach.
According to a press release, Casey Dick will join Fayetteville Public Schools as the head football coach for Fayetteville High School pending the vote by the Fayetteville Board of Education on Thursday, April 25.
Dick is currently the head football coach for Van Buren High School.
“We are happy to welcome Coach Dick home to Fayetteville, this time as our head football coach,” said Dr. John L Colbert, Superintendent of Schools. “We are confident we have selected the right man to lead our football program to even more success for many years to come.”
“Coaching the Fayetteville Bulldogs is a dream destination job for me,” said Coach Dick. “My daughter is currently enrolled in Fayetteville Public Schools, and I have been connected to Fayetteville since my time at the University of Arkansas playing for the Razorbacks. I hope to provide stability and affect generations of Fayetteville kids as well as provide a unified culture for all of the Fayetteville community.”
A native of Allen, Texas, Coach Dick has served as a head coach, assistant coach, and as a world history teacher for the past ten years. He received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Arkansas, where he played quarterback for the Razorback football team.
He served as an assistant football coach at Byron Nelson High School in Texas and at Bentonville West High School.
As the head football coach at Van Buren High School, his 2018 team was the first Van Buren team to make the playoffs since 2000 and scored more points than any other Van Buren team playing in the 7A conference.
