ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WTVY) - Enterprise High School football fans will see a new face on the sidelines next season.

Head Coach David Faulkner submitted his resignation Friday.

This was a tough year for Enterprise; they finished at the bottom of their region with a 2-8 record.

They'll enter next year optimistic for a better record, with a different coach.

Faulkner has been the coach at Enterprise since the 2012 season.

He amassed a 38-38 record in his 7 seasons, with his best season in 2016 - the Wildcats went 10-2 and Faulkner won 7a coach of the year.

WTVY talked to fans at the home basketball game Friday night.

Many were just learning of his resignation, but one says the coach may not be the problem.

"I look at it as, it could be not so much of the coaching,” said Enterprise Fan George Hutcherson. “I think it's a lot that's got to be with the players. The players have got to work together to be able to make things work out."

Enterprise City Schools Superintendent Greg Faught provided a statement, saying:

“Coach Faulkner was, and will continue to be an integral part of the community. We'll start the search for a new coach immediately, and we're expecting applicants from all over because this is such a big position.”

WTVY reached out to Coach Faulkner to see if he would like to express his thoughts on resigning, but he didn't answer the call.
Enterprise High School is the only 7a school in the Wiregrass.
