Lance Tucker to be Winfield Pirates football coach

Lance Tucker will leave Fayette County{}to become the new football coach at Winfield high school.

Winfield will be Tucker's third coaching stop within the AHSAA. He coached Sipsey Valley in 2010 before taking over at Fayette County when his Dad retired before the 2011 season.

Fayette County reached the 3A{}state championship{}game last season for{}the third time in{}the programs history.

Next season could be the first in 30 years in which a{}member of the Tucker family is not the head coach at Fayette County high school. Father Waldon Tucker coached the Tigers from 1983-2009 and{}son Lance Tucker has been in charge the past three.{}
