Aledo Welcomes Tim Buchanan Back as Head Coach

The Aledo Bearcats are coming off yet another championship season. That makes it seven State Championships in nine title games.

This year, the Bearcats will have a new Head Coach. The new coach however, is not new to the Bearcats.

New Head Coach Tim Buchanan will be returning to the Aledo sidelines after being the Athletic Director since 2014. He went 227-53-3 with the Bearcats from 1993-2013. Coach Buchanan's 227 wins puts him in a tie for 50th place all-time.

Current Head Coach, Steve Wood who followed Buchanan previously taking over the head coach job, will both precede and follow Buchanana. In handing over the HC role, Wood will be following him again - moving up to the role of Athletic Director. He has been the Head Coach for 5 years going 75-4 and winning three Championships in four title game appearance.
