WRAL learned Friday morning that Southern Durham Principal Rodriguez Teal was planning on announcing a new football coach Friday. A message was left informing us of the decision, but the message did not say who the new coach would be, and our phone call to the Athletic's office was not returned.
The naming of a new football coach confirms the report we first brought you on May 16th that Jeff Parker had resigned. This is the first time we have heard from the school itself, so we can now officially say Coach Parker will not be back at Southern next year.
The spotlight now is focused on Athletic Director Darrian Harris because rumors surfaced at the beginning of the month that he would be leaving Southern to become the head football coach at East Chapel Hill. There has not been any confirmation on this story by either party.
