North Myrtle Beach has hired Carl Dukes as its new wrestling coach, effective immediately.
Dukes, who was a standout wrestler at Conway in the mid-2000s, also played football at NCAA Division II North Greenville before graduating with undergraduate and Master’s degrees.
According to his bio with the Chiefs, he has also working toward a secondary Master’s degree in Learning Disabilities under Special Education through Francis Marion.
Dukes, who has worked with the North Myrtle Beach football and wrestling team this year, replaced Amos Collins.
The search to replace Socastee boys basketball coach DeAndre’ Scott is going to be more thorough than originally believed.
Braves Athletics Director Tim Renfrow said in an email that while the original posting through Horry County Schools included only the supplemental position – meaning their is no teaching position tied to the coaching job – he does believe that the school will have a teaching opening to pair it with soon. That means the scope of the search expands to those outside the HCS or state retirement systems.
Currently, Socastee has six teaching positions also posted through HCS. One of those is for a Social Studies position that simultaneously asks for “experience in coaching major sports.”
