David Wagner stepped down as Winder-Barrow High School’s football coach Friday after going 3-37 during his four seasons directing the Bulldogg program.
WBHS went winless in Wagner’s first two seasons before defeating Cedar Shoals in 2012. The Bulldoggs opened and closed the 2013 season with close wins against Jackson County, a Class AAA school, and rival Apalachee, who went winless this fall.
Wagner arrived at WBHS after a successful stint as defensive coordinator with the AHS Wildcats. Wagner was defensive coordinator during the team’s undefeated regular season in 2009 in which AHS won a region title and advanced to the third round of the playoffs.
“It was a culmination of things,” Wagner said on his decision. “It was not one thing that made me come to this decision. After conversations with the administration and seeing where the program is, I decided it was the best time for me personally and professionally to move on.”
