Bluffton High School Hires New Football Coach

Bluffton High School filled its head football coaching vacancy with a familiar face, promoting longtime assistant coach and defensive coordinator John Houpt to the head position. He replaces outgoing coach Ken Cribb, who accepted a position at Wayne County High School in Georgia. “When you have success, you don’t need to change much,” Houpt told The Island Packet recently. “There’s no reason to do that. We’re going to keep doing a lot of what (Cribb has) done. I’m going to instill a little bit of my philosophy — not to change it, just modify it a tad.”
