Sylacauga, AL – After one season at the helm of the Sylacauga Aggies football program, Andrew Zow is stepping down.  

The former Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback will be joining Dabo Sweeney’s Clemson Tigers staff in a player development role.  

Zow lead Sylacauga to a 7-5 record in 2020.  The 5A Aggies fell to Faith Academy in the first round of the AHSAA postseason.  

The Lake Butler, FL native began his coaching career at Montevallo, leading the Bulldogs to a combined 13-29 record and a tip to the playoffs in four seasons.  In 2016 Zoe made the move to Calera, where he lead the Eagles to a 16-18 mark over three years including a pair of postseason births and an 11-6 record in region play.  

Before accepting the top job at Sylacauga, Zoe spent one season at 6A Bessemer City guiding the Purple Tigers to a 8-3 mark and a trip to the postseason. 

His head coaching record currently stands at 44-53 with five playoff births and a 28-27 mark in region play over nine seasons. He was named the ASWA’s Class 4A coach of the year in 2014.  

During four seasons in Tuscaloosa, Zow passed for 5,983 yards and 35 touchdowns from 1998 to 2000.  

Clemson head coach Dabo Sweeney served as Alabama’s wide receivers coach during Zow’s tenure with the Tide.
