EASLEY APPROVED AS MUNFORD'S NEW HEAD FOOTBALL COACH


Michael Easley’s time has arrived as on Monday, the Talladega County Board of Education approved his hiring as Munford’s new head football coach. He replaces Bill Smith, who left for the head job at Fayette County over in West Alabama.

Easley, 38, has been linked to other head-coaching openings but he chose Munford for his head-coaching start.

Easley told the Anniston Star’s Joe Medley, “Just knowing about the program for a while, I think they’ve been to the semifinals two times in the last six or seven years,”

“They’ve had success recently, and I think they’ve got good administration.”

“I’ve known about the Munford program all my life, having a dad that was in coaching. Of course, we played them in high school and had some wars with them.”

Easley played for Michael Shortt at Cleburne County High School and began coaching as a volunteer assistant at Ohatchee. He also coached a year at Pleasant Valley before going to Saks under then-head coach Clint Smith in 2005.

Easley knows what it means to play into November.  During his 14 seasons as an assistant at Saks, the Wildcats made the playoffs 11 of those seasons, including the past eight straight.  Saks reached the state semifinals in 2013 and 2017.

FNN TO BRING RACE WEEKEND COVERAGE TO FANS LIVE FROM TALLADEGA SUPERSPEEDWAY STARTING THURSDAY


We'll be on location at the world's fastest speedway throughout the weekend to keep fans updated on what's happening as it happens.

"Anybody that knows me knows how much we poured into covering NASCAR weekends at Talladega when we had the radio station," said FNN's Jim Jacobs.

"The sport has changed tremendously since my first weekend there in 1993, and I haven't been back there since 2012 when we sold the stations.  I'm looking forward to returning and seeing a lot of old friends and anchoring FNN's coverage for the weekend."

"I've had many people ask me over the years why FNN hasn't done more stuff at the speedway and my response has always been the same - it's already on TV.  However, fans still want someone local that they know to tell them what's going on - the inside stuff - and that's what we're going to attempt to do this coming weekend and see how it goes."

Race Weekend activities actually get underway on Monday when the outside campgrounds are opened to fans from across America to stake out their campsites for race weekend.

On Wednesday, at 8:30 am that will be an official ribbon cutting to open the track's new tunnel to the fans.  Drivers Jeffrey Earnhardt and Stewart Haas Racing’s Chase Briscoe will be on hand to assist Talladega Superspeedway Chairman Grant Lynch.

On Thursday, FNN will have a host of drivers on hand following a luncheon at 12:30 p.m. CDT.  They include drivers from the ARCA Menards Series - Natalie Decker, Todd Gilliland and the Series points leader Travis Braden – all who will compete in Friday’s General Tire 200  In addition, we should have NASCAR Xfinity Series drivers Christopher Bell, who already has his spot in the season-ending playoffs with two triumphs thus far as well as Austin Cindric, driver of the No. 22 MoneyLion Team Penske Ford who sits fourth in the title standings. 

Friday begins on track activities early at 8:30 AM with a 75-minute final practice session for the  ARCA Menards Series.  That will be followed at 11:35 AM with a 50 minute NASCAR Xfinity Series First Practice.  The Monster Energy Cup cars get their first on-track action at 12:35 in their 50 minutes First Practice.  Final Practice for the NASCAR Xfinity Series gets underway at 1:35 PM for 50 minutes.  At 2:35 the starting field will be set for the ARCA Menards Series General Tire 200 in Group Qualifying.  That will be followed by Cup Series Final Practice at 3:35 PM.  Driver Introduction for the General Tire 200 starts at 4:30 with the Green Flag for the General Tire 200 for the ARCA Menards Series at 5 PM.  The race is 76 Laps (202.16 miles).  Following the race, the Talladega Infield Craziness escalates to fever pitch starting at 7:00 PM with the “Big One on the Boulevard” Driver Parade & Fan Competitions.

FNN will have live updates from the track throughout the day on Friday that you can see live on the FNN 24/7 Channel at fnnnetwork.com as well as the FNN Facebook, YouTube, and Periscope social media platforms.
