Tad Niblett resigns as Foley head coach

Foley, AL – After five seasons at the helm of the Foley High School football program Lion’s head coach Tad Niblett is stepping down.

The Harding University (AR) graduate lead the 7A Lions to a combined 17-34 record including a 13-27 mark in region play and a trip to the AHSAA postseason in his first year in Baldwin County.

Before taking over the Foley program in 2015, Niblett spent eight seasons as the offensive coordinator at Hoover, serving under his brother, Bucs head coach Josh Niblett. During his time in Hoover he helped lead the Bucs to four state titles and eight state championship game appearances.

Before joining the Hoover staff he served as the head coach at Selma’s Central Christian School, leading the Warriors to a 5-7 record in 1999 before taking over at AISA program Springwood School. During six seasons at Springwood he lead the Gators to a 31-34 mark including four playoff appearances.

His head coaching record currently stands at 53-75 with six playoff appearances and a combined 34-43 record in region play over 13 seasons.

Niblett’s old position at Hoover was vacated in February when Bucs OC Jason Kervin accepted the head coaching position at Georgia’s Alpharetta High School.
