Johnson County went back to some glory days to find a new head football coach.

Former standout quarterback Don Kerley was selected to replace Mike Atwood, who resigned last week after 16 years as the Longhorns' head coach.

"He wanted to come back, and the timing couldn't have been better," said Johnson County principal Lisa Arnold. "We were thrilled. We posted it Thursday, and he applied. He was just like a Godsend. We are tickled to death."

Arnold said the program is at a really good place for Kerley to take over.

"Last year we made it to the second round of the playoffs, and we didn't have many kids graduate," said Arnold. "We should have a strong team this year."
