For the 4th time in 4 years the Alton Redbirds will have a new head football coach patrolling the sidelines…After one season as the Redbirds varsity football coach, Dwight Tungett has been fired by the district. Alton finished 0-9 during the 2011 fall season.
Joe Hook was fired in 2009 after 11 seasons as the Redbirds football coach.
Nate Albaugh resigned after the 2010 football season…..and now Tungett has been fired.
Unnamed sources in the school district say there will also be a new athletic director at the high school next year. Current A.D. Scott Harper has apparently been relieved of his duties as well. So it appears the Redbirds will have a new head football coach and a new A.D. in the 2012-13 school year.
