Perhaps Cohu’s most impressive stat at Madison Academy is his 50-1 record in region play.  The Mustang’s lone region loss, in the Cohu era, came at the hands of the Sardis Lions in 2011.

Dr. Cohu was selected to lead the Alabama North/South All-Star game in 2010 and served on the staff of the 2014 US Army All-America Bowl.

Cohu will be instrumental in the search for Madison Academy’s next head coach according to a release from the school.
