According to NewsChannel 12, Tapley will be moving to Greensboro, but he will not be a head coach there. Before going to New Bern, Steve Tapley was the assistant coach at Wilkes Central. He took over as the head coach at New Bern High when Bobby Curlings was forced to resign before the 2018 season due to health issues. Curlings coached from 2006-2015 and 2017.
The New Bern Bears finished his season 2-9 overall, 1-5 in the Eastern Carolina Class 4-A/3-A conference.
