After about a month-long search, Bearden has hired a new head for its football program.
Greg Anthony, a Bearden High School graduate and assistant coach, was named the new Bearden Bears Head Football Coach and Athletic Director after a lengthy board meeting on Thursday night.
Anthony brings a wealth of experience to the Bears due to his working as a coach for 28 years. He was an assistant coach during several El Dorado championship teams, and has had successful stops throughout central and southern Arkansas. Anthony was the head football coach at Strong before returning to his alma mater in 2018 as an assistant coach.
He takes over the reigns from Trey Outlaw who recently accepted a position as a defensive coordinator in El Dorado.
“He’s been around very successful programs,” Bearden Superintendent Denny Rozenberg said. “He graduated from here. I think he is going to get a positive response from our kids because they like him.
“We’re behind him 100 percent. He’s going to be a great asset as an athletic director, too, and I think he is really going to help build our sports program as a whole.”
