“As most of you know, Chip stepped down as the head football coach at Albertville High School today. He has been offered and accepted a job with Hoover High School as their quarterbacks coach. Life is changing again for us, and I’m full of all the emotions. I am truly grateful for our time here at Albertville. We have loved our players, parents, students, coworkers, neighbors, etc., and y’all have loved us back. I am happy to be finishing the school year out here. Everything has happened so fast. I’ll share more about this journey at a later date. As always, our motto is - His plan, not mine; His time, not mine.”
