Beaufort High School Football Coach DeVonte Holloman Resigns

Beaufort High School is once again searching for a head football coach.

DeVonte Holloman resigned as Beaufort High School’s head football coach on Friday to seek opportunities closer to his family in the Rock Hill area, athletics director Linc Lyles confirmed Monday.

Lyles said Holloman has accepted a position at another school but declined to name the school. Multiple sources have linked Holloman’s name to the open head coaching position at South Pointe High School in Rock Hill — Holloman’s alma mater. 

Beaufort High does not have a timetable to hire Holloman’s replacement, Lyles said, and the administration intends to immediate begin a search in hopes of hiring a long-term coach.

“We appreciate Coach Holloman’s time and service at Beaufort High School and wish him success,” Lyles said. “We are excited about our current football program and the direction it is headed for the near and distant future. Our youth football programs, middle school football programs, and our high school football programs from youngest to oldest are as strong as they have been in a long time.”

Holloman, 27, was a star at South Pointe High School before going on to a standout career as a linebacker at South Carolina and playing for the Dallas Cowboys until his career was cut short by injury.
