Holmes hires it's next head football coach, moving assistant Brad Johnson into that slot.

Bonifay, FL--To prep football and it's official, Brad Johnson is the new head football coach at Holmes High School. Johnson takes over for the retired Al Simmons, who stepped down a few days ago. Holmes principal Eddie Dixon telling me today it was an easy decision to move Johnson up, he's been an assistant at Holmes the last five years, so he's worked with Simmons, and before that coach Jeff Webb at Vernon. So Dixon feels like Johnson's plenty qualified, and as he put it today, Holmes is fortunate to have him there. Johnson inherits a team that went 7-3 last season in the tough 1-A district one.
