Beauregard High School Athletic Director and head football coach Rob Carter has reportedly been hired to be the head football coach at Sylacauga High School, according to the Observer’s D. Mark Mitchell.

Carter leaves Beauregard after seven seasons (2014-2020), posting a 51-27 record. He finished 29-13 in Region games and 9-3 in the playoffs. The pinnacle of Carter’s time with Beauregard was undoubtedly the 2016 season, in which his Hornets achieved the program’s first ever 13-win season on their way to winning the AHSAA 5A State Championship.

Since then, the program has been in steady decline, losing in the third round of the 2017 playoffs, the second round of the 2018 playoffs and missing the playoffs in each of the past two years. This year, the Hornets finished 4-6, having been outscored 155-300 while going 2-4 in the area.

Carter replaces former coach Andrew Zow, who resigned in January after one season at the helm for the Aggies.

The Observer reached out to Beauregard High School for more information but did not receive a quote.

This is a developing story.
