Red River High School announced that Coach John Bachman has decided to step down from his position as Head Football Coach at Red River High School due to health concerns. Jeff Harper has been selected Interim Coach until permanent replacement is found.
Coach 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.

“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 School. Coach Bachman will remain on staff as a teacher in Red River Parish.”
