Orange Beach, AL – Jamey DuBose is stepping down after two seasons at the helm of the Orange Beach Makos football program.
During his two year stint with the Makos, DuBose posted a 9-11 record, including an impressive 8-3 mark and a playoff appearance in 2022. Prior to taking over the Orange Beach program, the veteran head coach led Prattville to state championships in 2008 and 2011, and Central-Phenix City to the 7A state title in 2018.
With a career spanning 18 seasons, DuBose has coached at several schools, including Susan Moore, Prattville, Florence, and Lowndes High in Valdosta, Georgia. His overall record currently stands at a remarkable 166-56.
“Orange Beach City Schools appreciates coach Jamey DuBose and his efforts. He has demonstrated and emphasized character above all else. He has worked closely with parents and has successfully mentored present and post students and colleagues. His drive and determination are extraordinary as is his knowledge of the game, organization of practice and ability to motivate. Coach DuBose is a winner. He will always be welcome on the Mako sideline and in our schools.” Orange Beach Superintendent Randy Wilkes said in a statement.
The search for a new head coach to succeed DuBose will begin on Monday. DuBose took the reins of the Makos program in 2022 when former head coach Chase Smith stepped down to accept the top job at Spanish Fort. Smith led the 4A program to a 12-8 record over two seasons.
Throughout his 18-year head coaching career, DuBose has maintained a winning percentage of 75%, with a total record of 166-56, including a 36-13 mark in postseason play. His accomplishments also include three state championships, nine region titles, and an undefeated season in 2018.
Orange Beach, which just completed its fourth season of varsity football, recently revealed plans for a $46 million athletic facility that will include a state-of-the-art 3,500 seat football stadium.
