The Coaching Carousel spun wildly this year, and the Tuscaloosa County Wildcats certainly were a part of this year. The Wildcats recently hired Adam Winegarden from Auburn High School. He replaces Jay Todd, who was let from the program after failing to post a winning record in his 2 seasons at the helm.

Tuscaloosa County is looking to rebound after a bad season last year, and hiring Winegraden after he led Auburn High School to the 7A Championship game seems to be a step in the right direction. He joined the Gary Harris show explained how his presence has changed the culture Tuscaloosa County.

Speaking on the culture Winegarden said "Well first the mission of our program is about whole player development...I always tell everybody there's seven parts of any athletic program."

As mentioned previously, Winegarden is leaving Auburn High School who just made the 7A championship game. When asked why he decided to come to Tuscaloosa, he said "I just want to be in a position where I feel like I was making a greater difference...I been coming by this school a long time...I've always had my mind, the vision I see for this community...I feel like I'm the perfect fit here."

Finally the community of Tuscaloosa County has embraced Winegarden and supported him, which when asked about Winegarden was thankful for the support, "I always say the greatest resource you have is you have tremendous people that want to do well and are hungry to do well and that are great workers."
