Whitwell Coach Randall Bouldin Leaving For Job at High School Alma Mater


After leading Whitwell high school to their first ever state football title last December, head coach Randall Bouldin is leaving the Tigers to take the head coaching position at Waverly high school.

Bouldin was an assistant coach at Whitwell before getting the head job in 2017, where he compiled the most successful run in school history. The Tigers went 11-2 in 2017 before going a perfect 15-0 last season, claiming the 1A state title. Waverly is Bouldin’s high school alma mater. The Whitwell head coaching job has become a revolving door. When Bouldin got the Tigers head coaching position in 2017, he became the school’s 9th head coach in the last 14 seasons.

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
