Greenville football coach completes staff

First-year Greenville High football coach David Crane has put together his staff, and former Clemson University wide receiver Xavier Dye is among the newcomers.

Dye, a former Byrnes wideout who played at Clemson from 2007 through 2010, is coaching wide receivers at Greenville.

Realignment means more travel for Red Raiders

The Red Raiders’ defensive coordinator is Chuck Bell, who’s been a graduate assistant at the University of Florida the past four years. He’s been an on-field GA with Florida defensive line coach Brad Lawing, and he’s assisted with recruiting.

“It’s kind of unusual you’re going to get a guy like Xavier Dye and a guy like Chuck with the experience he had a Florida, so I felt lucky we got those guys,” Crane said.

In addition, Chad Robinson, who played with Crane at Seneca and most recently coached at Wren, is coaching the defensive line; Mark Parsons, who came with Crane from Georgia, is coaching running backs; and Kyle Steadings, formerly a junior varsity assistant at Christ Church, is coaching linebackers.

So far this summer, the Raiders competed in a one-day 7-on-7 tournament at Easley and took fifth in the Spartanburg tournament at the end of June. They’ll be playing in the Wren tournament Thursday and Friday.

“We’ve got a lot of teaching to do,” Crane said, “not necessarily from a scheme standpoint, it’s just that the terminology is different.”
