PARIS, Ky. (WYMT) - Former Kentucky Wildcat and Phelps football head coach David Jones has been hired as Bourbon County football's next head coach.
Jones coached at Phelps for three seasons before stepping down from the position in December.
During his time with Phelps, Jones led the Hornets to a 14-16 overall record with two Class 1A playoff appearances.
"I've been preparing for this since I played at Belfry. I've coached in big games, we've always been in big games," Jones said Thursday night. "I've played against the Johnson Centrals, I've coached against them. The big thing is just getting my team to buy in. I'm very confident in my ability to coach and get kids to play and getting them to play to the best of their abilities, and I'm very confident in the staff that I'm going to bring in which will be very valuable to my success at Bourbon County.
