Reeves Steps Down As Coach
After seven years as the head football coach at Parkersburg High School Don Reeves has resigned that position.
Wood County Schools Superintendent John Flint confirmed Wednesday, April 26, that Reeves had resigned as PHS football coach.
The community had speculated an employee hearing would be held after a flier was circulated saying Reeves was to be terminated. Officials have said the flier did not come from Wood County Schools.
“Don came to my office this morning and submitted his resignation,” said Flint. “I then called PHS Principal Kenny DeMoss and let him know, as well as the board members.”
Reeves’ resignation will take effect May 9, and the football job will be posted the next day.
Taking over for Bernie Buttrey after the 2009 season, Reeves went 35-38 over seven years with the program. His teams made the playoffs three times but was not able to advance past the first round. The Big Reds finished 4-6 this season.
He was the quarterback of the 1978 championship team and made first team all-state. He went on to play quarterback at Morehead State Univeristy, and after a successful head coaching job at Jackson Junior High School, he was an assistant coach at Parkersburg High before taking over the program in 2010. He was also head coach one year at Parkersburg South High School.
