Former Vicksburg High School football coach Bubba Nettles is the new defensive coordinator at St. Aloysius High School.

Nettles made the announcement Friday in a Facebook post.

“I have officially signed a contract to teach and coach football at St. Al,” Nettles wrote. “I am honored to work for Mrs. Karla McHan in the building and learn and study under our head coach Stacy Sizemore on the field.”

Nettles also mentioned how much he valued his experience with Vicksburg High.

“I loved every minute of my time with VWSD and will cherish every relationship made,” Nettles said. “I miss my boys from VHS and wish them to have the greatest season in Vicksburg history.”

Nettles began coaching at VHS in 2011 under head coach Alonzo Stevens. Last season, he coached under Tim Hughes while Stacy Sizemore was the Gators’ linebacker coach. Sizemore is now the head coach for the Flashes.

Nettles will also be coaching the linebackers and offensive lineman for the Flashes as he helps rebuild a program that had a 5-6 record last season. Since joining the team, Nettles has been pushing the boys hard in the weight room and on the field to prepare for the upcoming season that begins in less than a month. The Flashes are scheduled to play Aug. 21 against Hartfield Academy with Nettles leading the defense for St. Al.

Many of Nettles’ supporters have been wishing him luck and much success on his new job.
