Arab head coach Oscar Glasscock set to take over Cullman Bearcats program

Cullman, AL – After one season at the helm of the Arab Knights football program, head coach Oscar Glasscock is heading 25 miles west to take the reigns at his alma mater.  The Cullman High graduate spent the first nine years of his coaching career as an assistant at Cullman before stints as a defensive coordinator at Hartselle and Mountain Brook.  

In his only season as a head coach, Glasscock lead the Knights to a 1-9 record in a season plagued with injuries on the field and controversies surrounding the schools decision to move away from the playing of their long time fight song “Dixie”.  

Glasscock will take over for Matt Plunkett, who is coincidentally an Arab High School graduate.  Plunkett resigned after leading the Bearcats to a 3-7 record, missing the playoffs for only the third time in the past 18 seasons.  

Knights offensive coordinator Randall Martin will lead the Arab program on an interim basis and will likely be a leading candidate to take on the job permanently.  Before coming to Arab, prior to the 2018 season, Martin served as the head coach at Rogers High School.  During his six year tenure as the Pirates head coach he lead the 4A program to a 39-27 record including a 23-2 mark and a pair of region titles in has final two seasons in Lauderdale County.
