Seymore Resigns

Andalusia High School head football coach Brian Seymore resigned as coach yesterday after seven seasons at the Andalusia helm. He is still an AHS faculty member.

Seymore amassed a 46-29 record during his tenure with the Bulldogs, including five straight playoff appearances. He will go down in the record books as the second longest tenured head coach in Andalusia High School history.

In 2011, Seymore led the Bulldogs to a 10-0 perfect regular season.

Seymore’s first season with the Bulldogs was former Bulldog and current Cincinnati Bengal Nico Johnson’s senior season. That team went 2-8, but Seymore quickly strung together consecutive winning seasons

This was only the second time in seven seasons that a Seymore-led Bulldog team didn’t make the playoffs, and they barely fell short this season, ending the season 5-5.


Seymore followed Heath Harmon as Bulldog head coach. Harmon  compiled an 11-2 record before leaving to take the head coaching position at White Plains High School.

Seymore was the defensive coordinator at Andalusia from 2006-07 under coach Tom Causey. He joined Causey’s staff in 2006 after previously serving as head coach at Pike Liberal Arts Academy, an AISA school in Troy. He then followed Causey to Demopolis in 2007 and served one year as the school’s defensive coordinator before returning to Andalusia.

Superintendent Ted Watson said Matt Johnson, an assistant coach, will be in charge of AHS football and the facility until a new head coach is hired.
