Active Coaches with the Most Wins 

    
          The 2019 offseason saw many coaching changes that will affect schools for year to come. Jamey Dubose took his talents to Georgia. Patrick Nix moves from Pinson Valley to Central Phenix City. Jamie Mitchell arrives in Alabama with a couple of state titles and a record of 216-73 in Mississippi and Arkansas. He takes over the program at Shades Valley.

          The most notable coaching change saw veteran hall of fame coach Waldon Tucker return to the sidelines after a ten year absence at Fayette County. He retired following the 2010 season as the all-time leader in coaching victories with 309. He returns in fifth place with a record of 309-126-3.

          That leaves us with the list below as we enter the 2020 season soon. Buddy Anderson leads the all-time list for wins in the state with 342 victories. Coach decided to retire only to return to the sidelines for one more season. The closet coach with a shot at toppling him is Terry Curtis with 317 wins.
