Aberdeen coach Chris Duncan steps away from Bulldogs

By Brandon Speck/Daily Journal

ABERDEEN – After five seasons and two Class 3A North championships, Aberdeen football coach Chris Duncan has resigned.
Duncan, who led the Bulldogs to the 2009 and 2010 state championship games, took over a program that went 1-19 in two prior years and compiled a 54-18 record, 22-5 in Division 2-3A.
“We have great kids and good athletes and that makes coaching easier,” Duncan said. “But I can give you one reason or 100. For me personally, my kids, church work; we don’t have many coaches here and we don’t have much support from the higher ups. There are several reasons.”
He has three sons, ages 5-and-under and is a full time preacher as well. When he took the job over from Jack Hankins, it was a one-year deal until a permanent replacement could be found.
