HUNTERSVILLE – Hopewell High football coach David Johnson has resigned to become head coach at Cuthbertson High in Union County.

Johnson coached two seasons at Hopewell, his first stint as a head coach. His teams were 5-7 in 2011 and 4-7 in 2012. Despite the losing records, both Titans squads qualified for the N.C. 4A playoffs.

“We are thankful for the energy and effort Coach Johnson put into our football program and wish him the best in the next chapter of his life,” Hopewell athletic director Jamie Billings said.
