Bethesda-Chevy Chase Football Coach Rich Noland Resigns

Noland leaves Barons after three seasons.


Bethesda-Chevy Chase (B-CC) High School football coach Rich Noland resigned Tuesday, following three years in the position and just three weeks after the team's second consecutive appearance in the Maryland 4A playoffs, according to The Washington Post.

Noland informed B-CC athletic director Jim Tapley of his decision Tuesday morning, informing his players later that afternoon, according to the Post story.

While Noland will continue to teach psychology and history, he told the Post that he wanted to spend more time with his two children. “In a few more years…they’re going to be in high school and gone,” Noland stated. “You don’t get those years back.”

Noland also shared that he believes that the football program has developed a “winning culture” that will last through the transition to a new coach.

Tapley said there is no “heir apparent” but the search for a replacement will begin soon.
