CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A familiar face is returning to Burke High School to lead the Bulldogs football program.

Charleston County School District announced on Thursday afternoon that Earl Brown Junior, who was the head coach at Burke from 2011 through 2015, is returning to the school as the team’s next head coach.
