West Forsyth replaced head coach Frank Hepler with offensive coordinator Adam Clack on Monday. The Wolverines averaged 36.5 points per game the past two seasons under Clack, and he takes over the program with 12 years of coaching experience. Clack had made coaching stops at Southeast Bulloch and South Forsyth prior to joining West Forsyth and also coaches wrestling at the school.

Clack became an assistant coach at West Forsyth under Hepler for the Wolverines’ inaugural 2007 season. Clack coached the secondary for the first couple seasons but would move to offensive coordinator in 2011. Hepler announced his resignation on Monday, April 14 to move back to Florida for family reasons and a coaching position at Cypress Bay High School (Fla.). Helper previously spent 14 years at the helm of Plantation High School in Florida.

West Forsyth has seen seven consecutive winning seasons and compiled a 51-18 record in the seven years according to the GHSFHA. New West Forsyth principal Heather Gordy was responsible for leading the search for Hepler’s replacement and just second head coach in school history. The staff has remained almost completely intact the past several years and keeping the hire in-house with Clack would keep it that way.

The resignation of several veteran head coaches has been a theme across the state this offseason, but perhaps nowhere more than Region 6-AAAAAA. All three top playoff seeds from the 2013 season out of Region 6 (Alpharetta, West Forsyth, Lambert) have resigned and all three have replaced their head coaches with offensive coordinators. Alpharetta replaced Jason Dukes, who took a job at Smiths Station in Alabama, with offensive coordinator Jacob Nichols. Lambert also promoted its offensive coordinator Louis Daniel, replacing Sid Maxwell. Chattahoochee, also in Region 6, promoted its defensive coordinator Vince Strine to replace Michael Owens after he resigned following his only season as head coach.
