Red River Football Coach Resigns

Citing health issues, Red River Head Football Coach John Bachman, Sr. is going to resign as football coach of the Bulldogs.  Bachman notified the Journal late Friday night of his decision.  He will remain at the school in a teaching role.

Here is Bachman’s statement:

It is with much regret that I have decided to tender my resignation as Head Coach of Red River High School Football Team.

Over the past several months, I have experienced health issues that, in my opinion, would significantly inhibit my ability to continue to give the student-athletes at Red River High my complete efforts. 

I have enjoyed a wonderful experience at Red River High School and consider many of my co-workers and administration family. 

I will remain in Red River Parish in a teaching capacity and will continue to support the wonderful student-athletes at Red River High School in any way possible.

I wish Red River Bulldog football the best in the upcoming seasons to come.  They are true warriors, and I can’t wait to see what they accomplish.

God bless.

Coach Bachman is shown with his team and coaches in October 2019 after securing his 100th career win.  Red River shut out Bunkie 21-0.
