After four seasons at Forrest City basketball and track coach, Larry Don “Skip” Dulaney has resigned to accept a coaching position at Class A Viola High School, where he will coach junior/senior boys basketball.
Dulaney came to Forrest City in 2014 and has coached the Forrest City Junior Lady Mustangs basketball and junior girls track teams.
He takes over a Viola senior boys squad that graduated two seniors, with 13 returning players to the team that finished 15-16 a year ago.
In 2014, after spending the seven seasons at Trumann as the boys basketball coach and athletic director, Dulaney came to Forrest City, after being caught in several district wide reassignments.
Dulaney compiled an overall 90-73 boys record at Trumann.
At Forrest City, Dulaney took over the junior high girls basketball program, replacing Robbie Ball.
His 2017-18 junior girls team finished 6-17 overall after the Junior Lady Mustangs opened the season by winning four of their first eight games before hitting the first bumps of the year, a six-game losing streak.
They followed that with a five-game losing streak to close out the year.
Dulaney took over the Forrest City junior high girls track program, replacing Monty Thornton.
At Stanford, a school that has since consolidated with Paragould, Dulaney coached the varsity girls team to a 36-4 record in his first season and reached the state semifinals.
He relocated to Paragould for four seasons to coach junior boys, and put together a 65-25 overall record.
Dulaney left Paragould to coach at Hoxie, where he coached the senior boys for nine seasons, going 109-89 overall before making the move to Trumann.
At Hoxie, Dulaney coached with current Forrest City coach Chris McManners, who coached the Junior Lady Mustangs from 2004 until 2012 and is now an assistant football coach with the varsity Mustangs team.
Dulaney attended school and graduated from Black Rock, where he played basketball.
Following graduation from Black Rock, Dulaney attended Southern Baptist Junior College (now Williams Baptist) to play basketball. He earned his masters in 2001 at Arkansas State University.
