Hood said that when Chambless left, Pleasant Valley didn't have the space to bring in somebody new to teach and coach.
"For a while, I thought I was going to handle both duties for a year or two until we got a position open," said Hood, who has coached Pleasant Valley's cross country teams to three state titles ? two in girls, one in boys.
That plan changed when Colton Morris became available. He teaches at the Calhoun County alternative school. A 2008 Pleasant Valley High graduate, Morris also is a long-time volunteer assistant for the Raiders' girls program. He spent 2017 and '18 as head girls basketball coach at Ragland before working in 2019 as an assistant softball coach at Gadsden City.
With Morris so deep in experience coaching girls basketball ? especially at Pleasant Valley ? it made sense for him to handle the team while Hood took over the boys.
