West Montgomery High School is losing its varsity football coach. Sources tell WMTG Nick Eddins is leaving West to become head football coach at 1,200-student Crest High School in Shelby, N.C.

Eddins has coached West football since 2011, compiling an overall record of 71-15, according to West football historian J.W. Houston. Among other accomplishments, Eddins took the team to two state championship games and coached them to a school record for most wins in a single season (15 in 2016).

School personnel close to the situation say Coach Eddins was scheduled to meet with students this morning (Feb. 13) at 9 to announce his departure.

NOTE: The original version of this story said Nick Eddins had coached West football since 2010, compiling an overall record of 78-21. The source material (MaxPreps.com) was incorrect, and we regret the error.
