UPDATE: Harrison County BOE Names Fisher RCB Head Football Coach

Bryan Fisher was officially named the new head football coach at Robert C. Byrd High School during Tuesday night's Harrison County Board of Education meeting.
Pending the approval of the Harrison County Board of Education, Bryan Fisher could be the next head football coach for Robert C. Byrd. Fisher served as the head coach for the Flying Eagles from 2002-2009 compiling a 58-and-28 record and five state playoff appearances before serving a stint at Fairmont State as the offensive coordinator in Mike Lopez's staff. Fisher returned to RCB as the offensive coordinator in 2013 under former head coach Bruce Carey. The BOE will approve or deny the recommendation Tuesday.

RCB Head Coach, Bruce Carey, Stepping Down


After three very successful seasons guiding Robert C. Byrd, Bruce Carey has stepped down as the leader of the Flying Eagle football program.
Carey led RCB to five postseason victories from 2012 to 2014 making the state semifinals in each of his first two seasons. Prior to arriving at Byrd, Carey led Bridgeport to 125 victories and the state championship in 2000.
A spinal aneurysm forced Carey to step down at BHS in 2009.
Former RCB Head Coach Bryan Fisher was on staff with Carey this past season and would figure to be a leading candidate for the post.
