The Bryan County school board Thursday night approved the addition of a wrestling coach at Bryan County High School and head and assistant girls' flag football coaches at Richmond Hill High School.
The vote was unanimous after a short discussion during a 90-minute workshop at the Community Education Center in Richmond Hill.
It approved paying the new Redskins wrestling coach a supplement between $4,320 and $5,940 depending on experience.
Approximately 16 students, including two girls, at the school are interested in participating in the program, Assistant Superintendent Jason Rogers told board members. Wrestling practice is set to begin Monday, according to the Georgia High School Association website. The season begins Nov. 23.
Depending on their experience, the head girls' flag football coach at RHHS will earn a supplement between $2,400 and $3,200; the assistant will get between $1,920 and $2,640.
The Georgia High School Association recently approved girls' flag football as a varsity sport, Rogers said. Practice has already started.
