School bells in Lafayette Parish will be ringing soon.
Students headed back to Northside High School have a few changes in store.

The changes at Northside are not just in the classroom, the school also hired a new head football coach.
Trev Faulk will lead the Viking football team in their first game of the year on Friday August 31st at home against the Acadiana Wrecking Rams.
