Knox Central names Dustin Buckner head football coach!

Recommended Posts

The Times-Tribune had a nice article on Coach Buckner, he is a family man with a great resume.  From the article:

In his assistant role in Corbin, Buckner was the wide receiver coach and supported the players' strength and conditioning.

His football resume dates back to July 2012 when he was the head coach of the Jellico Middle School football team. After the season ended, in July 2013, he transferred to South Laurel High to be the defensive back coach. The next year he gained college game experience as the graduate assistant wide receiver coach at the University of the Cumberlands.

From 2015 through the 2017 season, Buckner headed back to Jellico, this time as head coach of the Jellico High School football program. During his time there the team had their first playoff appearance since 2004, first home playoff game since 2022, and the first 3-0 season start in over 30 years. Buckner was also there for a $6,000 renovation project to the team locker room.
