My jaw dropped yesterday when my boss, Jeff Moreland, told me that high school football coaching legend Dudley Hilton was stepping down at Bell County to be the head coach at Pikeville College.
I've never met the Springfield native but his work is well known across the state.
That's only a few of his accolades.
He will be joining his son, John Dudley Hilton, at Pikeville College. John Dudley just completed his senior season with the Bell County Bobcats and is joining Pikeville College as a player.
I spoke with Hilton today. He's a great interview, very quoteable and funny.
Check in with us on Wednesday in the print edition for some of his quotes about his new job. He's very excited about his new endeavor.
