After having high school, college and pro success, Ahmaad Galloway is ready to bring success to Munford's football program.
Galloway was named the new head football coach for the Cougars replacing Matt Saunders who resigned in late January.
Saunders complied a 15-27 record in those years as the Cougars have made the playoffs the last two seasons.
When Saunders took over the Cougars they posted a 3-7 record in 2009 and 2-8 in 2010 but have since turned the program around.
This will be Galloway's first head coaching job after being an assistant at Oak Mountain (AL) high school for two years in 2009-10 and at Thompson (AL) high school in 2011.
"I was looking for the overall picture, for a balance of academics and football. This was the place I was looking for," Galloway said via a school press release.
Galloway had success as the star running back at Millington high school from 1995to 1998 and was a Class 5A Mr. Football Back Finalist in 1997.
He signed with Alabama and played for the Crimson Tide from 1999-2003.
In the spring of 2003 was drafted in the NFL by the Denver Broncos, he also played for the San Diego Chargers as well.
“He will be a great role model, both athletically and academically. We’re excited about this and ready for Coach Galloway to get started," Munford Acting Principal Courtney Fee said.
