Campbell (Lincoln County), Hochstetler (Bowdon) and McFerrin (Jefferson) are active.

Henderson has about 275 wins. Max Bass probably closer to 220.

Check out this site – See ‘find a coach’

Records for basketball coaches are kept, but I haven’t seen it updated in a few years. For other sports, it’s much harder to find. Might be something out there for baseball, but I don’t know where.
