2022 Football Coaching Changes


     Share on Facebook         
      


   
New Hires: Ten
Best Hire: Chris Hilliker, Southern Academy
Hardest to Replace: Bobby Carr, Autauga Academy
Best Job: Escambia Academy
Toughest Job: Meadowview Christian
Most Interesting: The most interesting hire was selected because of the way it took place. Hugh Fountain resigned at Escambia Academy and accepted the head coaching job at Pike Liberal Arts for a few days before deciding to go back to Escambia County and take over the head coaching duties at W.S. Neal.

     The problem arose when the powers that be over at W.S. Neal neglected to inform the current coach Brandon Wilcox in a timely manner before the news was reported on social media by AHSFHS.org and others. It created a tense situation for those involved. Anyway, it seems to have worked out for all involved as Coach Wilcox took the top job at Escambia Academy a few days later.
