Tigers head coach Nathan McDaniel leaving BCHS after six seasons


BAY MINETTE, Ala. – Baldwin County High head football coach and athletic director Nathan McDaniel announced Wednesday (Jan. 15) that he will resign from his head-football coach/athletic director position with Baldwin County High at the end of the 2020 school year or earlier if he accepts a post elsewhere.

He said he had discussed his options with the BCHS administration more than once since late last year and opted to leave the job he took on in 2014.

McDaniel previously led the Daphne High defense as coordinator under head coach Glenn Vickery and before that he had been an assistant at Prattville coaching linebackers. Before his arrival in Bay Minette, the Tigers had won only two games in the previous three seasons.

During his six-season tenure at BCHS his Tigers won 31 of their 60 games in what many consider the toughest Class 6A league in the state. They fell just short of a playoff birth in 2017 after going 7-3 overall, but a tiebreaker technicality bumped them from a post-season berth.

He said he was proud of the work he and his staff had done and is grateful for all the players and coaches who made sacrifices for the program.
