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.
