Davis named Albany High coach

July 22, 2005

Albany - The Dougherty County school board hired a head football coach and athletic director for Albany High Friday afternoon.

One of the positions is temporary and the other is permanent.

Albany High assistant Glenn Davis will be the Indians head coach for the 2005 season and Indians basketball coach Archie Chatmon is now also the school's athletic director.

Both positions became open when Scott Horton was named assistant principal at Albany High last month.

Glenn Davis has been an assistant coach at Albany High since 1998.

Before coming to work for Scott Horton's staff, Glenn Davis was an assistant at Mitchell-Baker for 18 years during which the Eagles won two state titles.

Glenn Davis was also the head baseball coach at Michell-Baker where he lead the Eagles to four region titles and a second place finish in the state in 1993.

The promotion of Davis from the Albany staff should ease the transition since the Indians first game is August 20th against Westover.

Archie Chatmon has been the boys basketball coach at Albany for the last 20 years.

He has led the Indians to two state runner-up finishes and last season Albany High won the Region 1-AA title.
