Wolves will be guided by a Burke County native
LINCOLNTON – Joe Glass — a Freedom High graduate whose football head-coaching experience includes a stint at Patton – is the new head football coach at Lincolnton.
His official hire as the Wolves’ new head coach comes after approval of a teaching contract by the Lincoln County Board of Education (coaches are then appointed by a high school’s principal).
Glass comes to Lincolnton from Eastern Guilford and will replace Ledford Gibson, who resigned after four seasons.
The Wolves went 12-3 and 13-2 in Gibson’s first two seasons then 6-7 in 2018 and 2-9 last season to miss the state playoffs after an 18-year run of postseason appearances.
Glass’ move was previously reported, pending board approval, by The Lincolnton Times-News.

Former head coach Bob McKay is returning next season at Lake Norman Charter.
Every school in the eight-team league except Maiden will have changed head coaches at least once since 2015.
