Richland Northeast hires new football coach

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) — River Bluff offensive line coach Justin Crocker has been named Richland Northeast’s new football coach.

Crocker shared the news with ABC Columbia Tuesday night.

The Gators assistant takes over for Bennett Weigle, who stepped down after winning just four games in two seasons with the Cavaliers.

Crocker has been an assistant coach for 15 years, so RNE will be his first head coaching gig, but he’s not a stranger to the midlands.

Prior to River Bluff, Crocker served as the offensive coordinator and offensive line coach for Josh Stepp at Lexington.

The new RNE coach played four seasons on the offensive line at North Greenville before entering the coaching ranks.
