Coach Johnny Wright Leaves Dora for a New Job at Hillcrest High School in Tuscaloosa
Story by Jonathan Bentley of the Daily Mountain Eagle
When Johnny Wright arrived at Dora High School, the Bulldogs’ football program was at rock bottom. The team had won one game in two years.

Six years later Dora is considered one of the top football programs in Class 4A.

That’s the legacy Wright will leave at Dora.

Wright stepped down from his post to take the over the head coaching duties at Class 6A Hillcrest-Tuscaloosa. He was officially accepted by the Tuscaloosa County Board of Education on Monday.

“It was a tough decision. I love Dora, the community, the people — it’s a great place and the people here have been great to me and my family. They welcomed us as part of the community,” Wright said. “I told the kids (at Dora) about my decision this morning. I wanted to tell them myself. We all met up there at the school and gave our good-byes.” Click here for the full story from the Daily Mountain Eagle.
