Chaparral High School Tabs New Varsity Football Coach

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (Feb. 23, 2018) – Chaparral High School has a new varsity head football coach.  The Scottsdale Unified School District high school announced to players and the community today that Brent Barnes will take over Chaparral’s football program, starting with the fall season.

Barnes brings with him 15 years of coaching experience and has served as head football coach at Norman North High School in Norman, Oklahoma for the past three seasons. Prior to that, he was the team’s offensive coordinator. Barnes takes over the Firebirds program from Thomas Lewis, who recently resigned.

“The opportunity to join a championship program at Chaparral and be closer to relatives made this the perfect situation for me and our family,” said Barnes.

During his six-year tenure at Norman North, the Timberwolves have gone to the Oklahoma state championship twice and the state quarterfinals twice. North teams have had the number one passing offense with six different quarterbacks during the past six years.  

“We are pleased to welcome Coach Barnes to the Scottsdale Unified School District and Chaparral High School. Coach Barnes brings with him a tremendous coaching pedigree, Arizona connections, and championship aspirations. He will assist our organization’s efforts to foster a culture of sportsmanship, respect, and character.”
