Hartselle’s Bob Godsey named Madison Academy head coach

Madison, AL – The Madison Academy Mustangs have named their next leader on the gridiron. The North Alabama power officially named Hartselle’s Bob Godsey the program’s 14 head football coach Friday afternoon.

Godsey leves Hartselle as the winningest head coach in school history having lead the Tigers to a 141-51 record over 17 years. His tenure at HHS included five region titles, 14 trips to the AHSAA postseason, a semi-final run in 2010 and a 15-0 mark, including a 5A state title, in 2011.

He was named the 2010 Alabama Sports Writers Association 5A Coach of the year in 2010.

Before taking over at Hartselle in 2013 the Wilson High graduate served as the offensive coordinator at Decatur for eight seasons before landing his first head coaching job at Brooks in 1998. During four seasons at the helm of the Lions program he lead the school to a 42-15 record including a 19-10 mark in region play, three consecutive playoff births and a 4A region 8 crown in 2001.

Godsey is taking over for former Madison Academy head coach Grant Reynolds who resigned after the season to take a head coaching position in Chattanooga.

The Mustangs finished 2018 as 5A region 8 champs, capping the season at 10-2, falling in the second round of the AHSAA playoffs to eventual state champions Central-Clay County.

Godsey will reportedly begin his new position in Madison on Monday.
