Lance Tucker decides to stay at Fayette County

Lance Tucker had a change of heart.

Less than three week's after agreeing to become the new coach at Winfield high school, Tucker reversed his field and has decided to stay at Fayette County.

"I just got up yesterday morning and realized I had made a mistake," Tucker told "I make mistakes all the time, but this one the magnitude is a lot more.

"I made a mistake and sometimes you have to be a man and say, 'I messed up. I'm sorry'."

Lance Tucker has been head coach at Fayette County the past two seasons. He was named head coach after his father, Waldon, retired after 27 seasons as the Tigers head coach.

Lance Tucker also starred at quarterback for Fayette County in the late 1990s.

"We're glad he's staying where he's wanted," Fayette County principal Jeremy Madden told, "and we wanted him to stay here."
