I read somewhere that the high school football coach resigned. I was wondering if anyone had any information about why and what the situation is like at Pikeville Independent. Thanks.

Ben Howard is the son of former Pikeville high coach, and legend, Hillard Howard. Hillard now coaches Letcher Co. Central

I would retire too with Harmon graduating haha.

Didn't Howard coach at Valley for a year, and get kicked out for drug (and a few other) problems?

It was either a drug problem or alcohol related - dont recall, its been a while. I think the official statement was "health problems" per the News-Express.

Ben Howard also was also a standout QB for Pikeville and graduated from there in 1999. I think he still holds the record there for passes completed in a season.
He also was a QB for Georgetown when they won the National Championship in their division in 2000 I think.

He was an assistant coach at Pikeville College for 4 years, took the head coaching position at Valley (but left before the season ended), and has served as the offensive coordinator under his dad at Letcher County Central for the past 3 years.

i believe copley had another opportunity but it did come down to getting howard back involved. ben is a drug addict and can never be curied. but he has a chance. the thing is hillard will be back next year now.
