Prattville High's Head Coach Search

PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) -

The receipt of the letter marks the end of an eight year tenure for Prattville High School former Head Coach Jamey Dubose, and the start of a search for a new head coach.

"And with great people comes great opportunity and we feel like that's what we feel Coach Dubose received here was a great opportunity," Autauga County Schools Superintendent Greg Faulkner said.

Faulkner says Dubose never asked for a raise, but school officials believe that money is what ultimately enticed him to accept the head coaching job at Florence High School.

"We're not able to pay sometimes what some of the other communities because of our tax base and it's just tougher for us to do in the economic times that we're in," Faulkner said.

Dubose lead the team to two state championships and was an assistant during two others, turning the team into a powerhouse.

"People asked why Prattville? And now Prattville is what it is here in the state of Alabama. They may be saying why Florence now, but hopefully we can move in the direction that we did there," Former Prattville High Head Coach Jamey Dubose said.

Faulkner says he was a father figure to his players and a leader on and off the field.

"No one is ever going to take the place of somebody. But they just want to make sure that whomever comes into this position is able to come in and carry the ranks in a positive way and be a spokesperson for the community," Faulkner said.

The superintendent says he's already been contacted by interested candidates in six states. Plus, some current staff members are interested.

"So we will put the hiring notice out now. We'll have it out there for two weeks and we will see how many folks apply," Faulkner said.

On a quest to find the next head coach to carry on the momentum and tradition of the Prattville High School football program.

The superintendent says Dubose earned around $74,000 at Prattville. He will earn $87,000 per year to work as the head football coach and serve as a physical education teacher at Florence High.

Superintendent Faulkner hopes to name a replacement by the week of February 20th. If no one is named then, the search will continue. Faulkner says the goal is to have a head coach in place for spring practice.
