When Albany High named Felton Williams their interim head coach for the 2009 season last summer, the former Indians quarterback wanted a full time chance to prove he can be a head coach.
Williams will get the chance after the Dougherty County School Board unanimously approved his hiring Monday.
Williams wasn't the first choice with former Windsor-Forest coach Mike Martin accepting then declining the job two weeks ago.
Felton Williams is not only a former player but he has been an assistant for the Indians.
He is ready for the challenge of turning around a program that has won just two games in the last four seasons.
Williams says excuses when Albany High does not win a football game will no longer be tolerated.
Felton Williams "I am just ready to give back to a program that gave so much to me. To show these kids there is still some winning to be done at Albany High and winning can happen here. I am just eager to get to work."
William says Albany High will hold spring practice in May.
