Run it back.

After a successful season within Buford athletics, all of the head coaches are returning for the 2024-25 academic year. Some notable assistant coach changes were made to multiple sports, however, all of the leaders are staying in place.

“I think it speaks volumes about the fact that Buford City Schools is a great place to work and coach,” athletic director and wrestling coach Tom Beuglas said. “The facilities, the community, the support from the City of Buford, the Board of Education and our central office make this place special.

“Our coaches realize this and do not want to coach anywhere else.”
