HEAD FOOTBALL COACHING CHANGES COMING AT ALEXANDRIA AND ANNISTON
Alexandria head coach Frank Tucker has told his team that it’s time to “hang it up” while the Anniston School Board made the same decision for Bulldogs Head Coach Eddie Bullock.
Coach Tucker told FNN, “Coaching football is a great job. I’ve loved it for 31 years, but I’ve just decided that it’s time. It’s something I’ve been thinking about since Thanksgiving. I want a slower pace of life and this is the only way that happens.”
Tucker was the replacement for the legendary Larry Ginn and has spent 11 seasons at the helm of the Alexandria football program. He has been one of only three head football coaches at the school since 1947. During his time, Tucker amassed a 77-44 record with two region titles and nine playoff appearances.
The Valley Cubs will begin spring practice next Monday with Andy Shaw acting as the interim head coach.
Tucker’s announcement comes within the same 24-hour time frame of Eddie Bullock’s dismissal on Thursday night as Anniston High School’s Athletic Director and Head Football Coach.
Bullock has coached the Bulldog program over the past eight seasons to a 40-47 record. Anniston made four playoff appearances under Bullock, but only once over the past five seasons.
In respect to a replacement for Bullock, Anniston Superintendent Darren Douthit told FNN that he would support Anniston principal Charles Gregory’s handling of the search for a successor.
It is unclear at the moment if Bullock will remain as the head girls’ basketball coach.
“That is based upon Coach Bullock’s intent,” Douthit said.
“We wish Coach luck as he moves forward if he’s pursuing something else. I think that’s what I heard, he’s interested in something else.”
It will be interesting to follow the potential hires at both schools, but especially Alexandria. One name that will certainly circulate will be Jonathan Miller, currently the head coach at Saks. Miller has had tremendous success since taking over the Wildcats, has Alexandria ties and is a Larry Ginn disciple. Another name that will likely pop up is Todd Ginn, one of Coach Ginn’s sons. Todd presently runs Champion Sports in Alexandria, a facility geared towards teaching basketball skills.
We see no clear-cut choice for the Anniston hire, but one name that might surface is Shannon Felder. Felder is now at Sumter Central in West Alabama, where he’s about to begin his 2nd season with the Jaguars following a 2-8 start in 2017. Coach Felder was the head coach at The Donoho School for ten seasons (2004-2014), leading the Falcons to a 67-54 mark and two region titles. Felder still has some ties to this area.
FNN will follow both coaching searches and keep you posted on who gets the head football coaching job at Alexandria and Anniston.
