I have noticed a trend in HS athletics here in NC over the years. That is a growing number of head coaches being between 19-22 years old. I have heard of at least 3 schools hiring head coaches, all under 21 years old. Most recently Blue Ridge promoted JV coach Adam Bullard to be the new mens basketball coach, and he is only 20 years old. I am not knocking young coaches at all, but why is this becoming the new trend now? Are some of these kids that don't even have degrees with hiring so young?
