DUNCAN — For the seventh time in the past six years, the Central High Broncos are in the hunt for a new football coach.

Former Bronchos coach Darren Lamar’s resignation from the position became official when it was accepted at Central High’s school board meeting last Monday.

Lamar will take an assistant coaching position at Salina High School, a Class 2A school that plays in the 2A-8 District.

In his only season coaching at Central High, Lamar led the team to a 7-4 record and a berth in the Class B playoffs. The Bronchos opened the 2012 season by winning its first four games before going 1-3 in its next four. Central High earned its place berth by taking the final two games of the regular season and fell to Laverne 58-12 in the first round of the playoffs.

Before coaching at Central, Lamar worked an assistant at Temple, which reached the state semifinals two years ago. He had been hired in June 2012 when former Bronchos coach Andy Clayborn resigned after leading CHS through spring practice.
