Butts is New Women’s Basketball Coach

John Butts began coaching women’s basketball at Gadsden State Community College on September 1. 

He began his coaching career at Etowah High School in 2003 with a program that had lost 55 consecutive games. In his first year they won 13 games, and during his third year they qualified for the state play-offs for the first time in school history. Butts led the school to the play-offs for the past two seasons, and in 2010-11 they celebrated a record of 24-5.

“We are extremely excited to have John join the Cardinal family. He is well known in the community and will be a great recruiter for Gadsden State,” said Athletic Director Mike Cancilla.  The Lady Cardinals open the season November 2 against Motlow State Community College (Tennessee).  The game will be held at Beck Field House on the Wallace Drive Campus in Gadsden at 5:30 p.m.
