PITTSBORO — The hire has been made after months of speculation.

Northwood High School has hired Cullen Homolka as its head football coach, replacing Brian Harrington, who resigned after four seasons.

Harrington, a Northwood graduate, took over for the departing Bill Hall in the 2015 season and compiled a 23-23 mark in four seasons at the held, including a 4-6 campaign in 2018 in which the Chargers missed the state playoffs.

Homolka, who will teach health and physical education at Northwood, spent the past two seasons as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Clayton High School.

“I am thrilled to be joining the Northwood High School family,” Homolka said. “This is an amazing opportunity and I look forward to bringing my coaching experience to the classroom and field, as we build on the past success in this new era of Charger Football.”

“We are thrilled to have Coach Homolka join our athletics department,” Northwood co-athletics director Jason Amy said. “He brings a blue-collar mentality that we hope will permeate our football team. He has high expectations, and his enthusiasm for teaching the game will be extremely beneficial for our student-athletes.”

Homolka, a Claflin, Kansas, native, was a fullback for the University of Kansas. From there, he coached at a number of universities, including N.C. State University, where he was the Director of Player Personnel for Wolfpack head coach Dave Doeren.
