MARLIN, Texas David Haynes, Jr. is the new head coach in Marlin and begins a rebuilding project with the Bulldogs this fall.
Haynes takes over as a head coach for the first time in his career and takes over a program that fell on hard times last season. Marlin lost all 10 games in the 2018 season and most of those were not real close. So Haynes begins a rebuild and hopes to make it happen quickly.
Haynes has some talent in Marlin including at wide receiver. There's speed and athleticism in that group led by Sir Charleston Lee who returns to try and make plays for the Bulldogs.
There are a lot of questions too. The Bulldogs have to be better up front and on defense if they're going to break into the win column. Haynes believes his team can do that this year.
