After three seasons leading the Bellmont football program Marty Ballard has stepped down as the Braves head coach.
Ballard’s teams went 7-26, including 2-10 this season when the Braves went winless in the regular season but won two straight in the playoffs to earn a spot in the sectional title game.
Ballard says he wants to spend more time with his young family.
Bellmont is the second NE8 program undergoing a coaching change already this off-season. Rick Burnau is no longer the head coach at Huntington North.
