Bryant Schools announced their approval Wednesday of the new Head Football Coach for the Hornets.
The Bryant Public Schools Board of Directors held a special called meeting on May 31, 2023. The meeting was held by video call, and the agenda listed just one item – personnel items.
Board president Craig Leone called the meeting to order then deferred to Dr. Karen Walters, the Superintendent of Schools. Walters stated that they would be recommending Quaderrick “Quad” Sanders for Head Coach of Bryant Hornets Football. All board members gave their approval.
“We are so happy to have Coach Sanders come home to lead our football program. Quad was the first and best choice to continue Bryant’s success,” Walters said in a statement.
Coach Sanders was recently the Defensive Coordinator for Bryant. He joined the Hornet football coaching team in 2018. During his tenure as defensive coordinator, the Hornets won five state championships, a record in the state’s largest classification. He was the recipient of the 2022 Broyles award as Arkansas’ top assistant high school coach.
Sanders left Bryant’s program in March to become the head coach of Jonesboro’s Golden Hurricane football. After learning of the Hornet Head Football Coach vacancy, Bryant’s incoming Athletic Director Kirk Bock reached out to Sanders. “Coach Sanders is respected and loved by both players and coaches,” said Bock. “As a colleague of Coach Sanders for the past five years, I can attest to the strong work ethic he will bring to the position and the program.”
