BLOOMINGTON – Bloomington High School is expected to name Scott Godfrey as its new head football coach, pending approval of the District 87 school board.

Godfrey, 32, has guided Warrensburg-Latham to a 22-27 record in five seasons, finishing the last two seasons with the school’s first winning records since 2002.

Godfrey would replace Joe Walters. He resigned after two seasons, saying he wanted to return to coaching in a faith-based setting.

Walters finished with a 9-9 record in two seasons at BHS.
