Bedwell back on the sidelines


RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — David Bedwell and his three state championships will be back on the sidelines this fall.

Hermitage High School announced Monday that Bedwell will be the Panthers’ new head coach.

Bedwell won 203 games at Henrico and LC Bird before becoming Bird’s athletic director after the 2016 season, according to the school’s website.

He will take over a Hermitage team that made the playoffs every year from 2007 to 2017 under Patrick Kane, but fell to 1-9 under new coach Derrick Johnson last year.
