West Virginia native Alan Fiddler was named the new head football coach at Patrick Henry High School last Thursday afternoon at Gainer Field.
Fiddler replaces former PH coach Brad Bradley, who is moving to Amelia County High School to assume dual responsibilities of head football coach and athletic director.
Bradley had been at PH for two years.
Fiddler brings extensive experience to the Patriots. He previously was the head coach at NCAA Division II Glenville State College (WV) where he had a winning record of 45-32 over seven years. He also was head coach at Moorefield High School in West Virginia for seven seasons (’93-’99), and, after an assistants job at Marshall University, returned to Moorefield for an additional three seasons (2001-03). In the ten total years at Moorefield, Fiddler won six West Virginia Class A state championships, going 98-28 in the process.
Fiddler is married to wife, Amy. They have four children.
