According to, Gardner-Webb’s Football Coach Ron Dickerson Jr has resigned. Dickerson has been the head football coach at Gardner-Webb for just 2 seasons and recorded an overall record of 7-15 and 4-8 in Big South Conference play. This past season the Runnin’ Bulldogs finished 3-8 and 2-4 in the conference. Ron Dickerson never beat Liberty during his time at Gardner-Webb.

This is odd timing coming on January 18, as we are less than 3 weeks away from Signing Day. It will be hard to find a replacement head coach, a full coaching staff, and recruit prior to February 6.

Dickerson marks the 2nd Big South Conference football coach to leave their posts as Charleston Southern head coach Jay Mills retired January 3rd.
