B-CC has named former junior varsity head coach Josh Singer as the school’s new varsity head football coach.
Singer, 28, replaces Rich Noland who resigned in November after four seasons at the helm.
“I’m very excited about the opportunity,” said Singer, a Northern Virginia native who played football at George Mason High School in Falls Church. “I really am honored to be selected for the position.”
During his tenure at the school, Noland guided the Barons to a 23-17 record including back-to-back 7-3 seasons over the last two years. Last season, B-CC won six of its final seven regular season games after starting out with a 1-2 record.
“I think we’re definitely returning a lot of key players,” said Singer. “We’re hoping to continue the success of the program.”
Expected to be among the leading returnees next season are fullback and linebacker Nana Amankwah-Ayeh, defensive end Malik Matthews and linebacker Keenan McCumber.
“We think that we have the guys in place that can really step in,” said Singer.
Prior to Noland’s arrival, B-CC had not made a playoff appearance since the 1995 campaign when the Barons finished 11-1 and advanced to the postseason for the first time in school history.
