Dennis Schwab was the head coach at South Beloit for the past four seasons. Now he returns home to Durand. Schwab graduated from the school in 2001, and now has the opportunity to coach his old high school.
"It's a great honor to be back here and try to give a little back to the community that raised me," Schwab said.
Durand went 3-6 last season in a tough NUIC. The Bulldogs hope to improve under their new coach.
"I think it's going to take a combined effort," Schwab said. "Not just with the coaches and players, but with the community as well."
The Durand community will have to hit the road for the season opener, as the Bulldogs open with Orangeville Friday night.
