Mendoza returns to Lincoln
Former Lincoln offensive coordinator will return to Lincoln as the head football coach of the Wolves.
Mendoza will replace Don Harrison, who resigned after five years at Lincoln. Mendoza was offensive coordinator and head baseball coach at Lincoln before leaving last year for Dover, where the Pirates went 0-10 in football last fall while competing in the 4A-4 Conference.
Mendoza previously coached at Dardanelle, Russellville, and Mena.
"Number one, he's a great person," Lincoln athletic director Deon Birkes said of Mendoza. "He knows the terminology, so it'll be as easy transition. He's a great fit for our community and he's great with the kids. Football will take care of itself when you teach players to be great young men."
Lincoln will play in the 3A-1 West Conference after going 5-5 overall and 2-5 in 4A-1 Conference play in 2019.
