Clyde Byrd has been hired as the new football coach at Castlemont High.
Byrd was the head coach at Kennedy-Richmond in 2010, and also at Oakland High in 2003 and 2004.
“I used to work in the area. I worked at Elmhurst (Community Prep) for years. I used to coach at Oakland High, I used to coach at Mack. I thought it was time for me to come back home and coach,” Byrd said.
Among his goals for the team is “to change the culture of the football program of the school.
“I feel this group can win right away,” he said.
Last season, Castlemont was 0-8 overall and 0-5 in the Oakland Athletic League.
