Crawford out as Lady Aggies basketball coach; still coaching football and track

SYLACAUGA Ala.- Despite having a phenomenal 2019-2020 season, the Lady Aggies basketball team is looking for a new head coach.

During its virtual meeting on Thursday night, the Sylacauga City Board of Education voted 4-0 to terminate Crawford from his position as the head coach for girls basketball, with board member Janean Crawford abstaining.

Crawford ended his run with a 301-127 record in 16 seasons as head coach.

In the past seven seasons,  the Lady Aggies seen three area titles, three regional championship appearances, two Final Four appearances and a state finals appearance in 5A.

Sylacauga City Schools Superintendent Dr. Jon Segars explained the decision was made based off an analysis done back in November by the co-athletic directors and the overall girls basketball program at both SHS and Nichols-Lawson.

Crawford will remain as an assistant football coach and track and field coach.

Board vice president Amy Price said she was glad that Coach Crawford will remain with the track team and he has done an excellent job.
