Reporter Drew Petrimoulx has been in contact with the district over the last few weeks after receiving a tip Bolding may no longer be the coach. To date, the district won’t say either way telling us “it’s a personnel matter” that can’t be discussed.
Petrimoulx put in a request for employee personnel records and certain emails in Bolding’s district account. The request for personnel records was denied by the district. While some emails were handed over to Petrimoulx, any emails centering around Bolding’s “job performance or evaluation” weren’t released.
Last week, our content partners at the Arkansas Times submitted a request for information about athletic department and football spending in North Little Rock and spending of private booster organizations that support North Little Rock football. The district responded by saying it wouldn’t be able to respond to that request.
Last week, Bolding scheduled an interview with Jason Snavely to discuss the rumors and his employment status. Bolding didn’t appear for the shoot.
Bolding joined North Little Rock in 2007 as head coach. He previously worked at Mayflower, Rogers, Greenwood and the University of Arkansas at Monticello.
North Little Rock finished 11-2 in 2014. Wide receiver K.J. Hill led the team and is considered one of the top prospects in the country at his position.
Last week, Bolding reportedly applied for the head coaching position at Nashville High School. The spot was given to another candidate.
