Bobby Bentley Leaves Byrnes For Presbyterian

It's been a great run for Bobby Bentley at Byrnes High School but it appears he's headed to his other alma mater to try and build a powerhouse there. Come inside for the latest.

Bobby Bentley saw the entire spectrum of ups and downs of coaching world during his tenure as head coach of the Byrnes Rebels. In his first few seasons his teams were only able to muster a few wins but as time went on Bentley slowly built Byrnes into first a state powerhouse and now a nationally known powerhouse football program.

A few years ago Bentley was mentioned for coordinating positions at various D1 schools including Clemson University but he decided to stay close to home to build a program and keep his family roots tight knit. After a tremendous run which included 4 consecutive AAAA Division 2 state championships the colleges once again came courting one of the top high school coaches in the nation and one hit a nerve obviously as a Wednesday morning press conference is scheduled at Presbyterian College in Clinton, SC.

There Bentley is expected to become the new head coach for the Presbyterian Blue Hose. Why PC many outside of South Carolina may ask? Because Bentley played his college football there and it's only fitting that after he returned to his alma mater at Byrnes and built that program into one of the top in the state that he try to do the same for the Blue Hose now on the collegiate level.

Bobby Bentley made his mark at Byrnes and now will try to do the same for the Blue Hose. Some loved and opposing teams hated his high powered offenses and quick strike ability but everyone must concede that the man has a great mind when it comes to building an offensive juggernaut given the time, players, support of a strong core of assistants, and players dedicated to spending countless hours in the weight room during the season and offseason.

Everyone at SCPrepNation.com would like to wish Bobby Bentley continued success at Presbyterian College and thank him for the opportunity of covering his teams and players during our short time of existence. We will have more coverage once the press conference is held and of Bentley's PC squad once their season is underway.
