Hometown hero Goforth returns to revive Hornets
Hometown hero Bobby Jack Goforth is returning home to Caldwell where he became a multi-sport star which propelled him to a successful college and coaching career.
Goforth, 47, is a 1985 Caldwell graduate and agreed to become the Hornets’ fourth coach in the past four years.
The Ca ldwel l footbal l program has been reeling ever since the depar ture of Dale Williams in 2010.
The Hornets have gone 2-17 in the past two seasons under two dif ferent coaches.
Goforth replaces former Cameron standout Kenneth Gilchrist who left af ter one season to return to Whitney.
Gilchrist had concerns about support from the administration and resigned in February.
Goforth played for his father at Caldwell and had an outstanding football career at Baylor.
He has spent the last six seasons as head coach at San Antonio Jay where he was 23-37, including a 4-6 mark last season.
