Bailey served as the offensive coordinator at Peach County HS in 2022.
WARNER ROBBINS, Ga. (41NBC/WMGT) — The Northside High School football team has a new face at the helm, Ben Bailey.
Bailey takes over for former head coach Chad Alligood, who resigned just over a month ago to accept the athletic director position at Jones County HS.
Bailey was Peach County’s offensive coordinator in 2022, leading the Trojans to 32.1 points per game. In 2019-2021, he also served as the Houston County Organizing Committee.
Bailey plans to bring that high-powered attack to Northside, but his goals go beyond the football field.
“We’re going to talk about Northside DNA. You think of Northside; you think about traditions. You think about the DNA of these kids and they grew up wanting to play football here. So we’re going to talk about discipline and accountability and all the Northside family stuff, so we’re excited about that, too,” Bailey said.
Bailey will look to lead the Eagles to their first regional title since 2014.
