Hooper Academy (AL): Veteran Alabama high school coach Steve McCord has been hired as the head coach at Hooper Academy in Hope Hull. McCord has a career 151-118 record in 24 seasons as a head coach, but has not coached since 2008
Luke Childers has taken over as head coach at Vina. Childers is a 2006 graduate of the school and has been an assistant there for the last two years. It is his first HC job. James Pharr has stepped down to focus on his duties as principal.
Holt's coach at the beginning of the year was Kelvin Smith. This article from last night's game with Brookwood says that Phillip Merryman was in his first year as coach for Holt. I'm not sure if the change was made before the season or not. Nothing was ever reported in the local paper.
