LeRoy Riley to coach Colleton Prep

WALTERBORO, S.C. (WCIV) -- Longtime Walterboro and Colleton County HS Head Football Coach LeRoy Riley will coach football again in Walterboro.

The job was vacated by Neil Minton who left for Florence Christian. Riley coached 24 years at Walterboro/Colleton County before resigning under pressure this offseason.

Riley did win a state title but ended his stint with 23 straight losses. Riley will coach spring football at Colleton prep but finish out the year as Colleton County's AD.
