Lee Hall has been hired to lead Homewood following a successful three-year run at Randolph in Huntsville. Hall was previously a head coach at Northview (2013-14), Northpoint Christian, Miss. (2011-12), Briarwood (2004-09) and Shelby County (2003).
A familiar face in the Southside school system ? and Etowah County ? now is leading the Panthers? baseball program. Mike Lamb, who has been a coach at Gaston (2001-05) and Westbrook Christian (2006-11), recently was named Southside?s baseball coach. The 64-year-old also coached baseball three years at Rainbow Middle School. With no teacher spots open, there wasn?t a lot of flexibility for finding a new coach. But that turned out to be OK with Lamb in the school system. Once Blake Bone told Lamb he was stepping down, he immediately let Southside principal Chris Winningham know he was interested.
