CULLMAN, Ala. — Cullman High School varsity boys basketball coach Bobby Meyer will be stepping down as coach of the Bearcat basketball team.

Meyer has coached the Bearcats for 11 seasons and led the varsity boys to a 14-9 overall record during the 2020-2021 season.

“Coach Meyer has been a great leader and example for young men during his time as coach at CHS, and we are very thankful for the positive example he’s set for young men here for more than a decade,” Cullman High School Principal Kim Hall said. “We are extremely grateful for the contributions he has made to CHS athletics and the Cullman community.”

Meyer thanked his staff and the administration for the opportunity to serve as coach, as well as his family for their support.

“I’m a ball coach. I enjoy teaching in the classroom. At all levels of the organization the vision of coaching a program has to be unified. At this point, I have decided to step down as basketball coach at Cullman High School,” he said. “I want to thank my loyal staff, Joseph McPhillips, Cory Meyer and Jason Johnsey. I also want to thank the many other coaches on staff for their friendship through the years; Josh Hembree, Jonathan Hayes and many others. I’d also like to say thank you to Scott Lochridge. Thank you, Dr. Patterson, the administration and board members for the opportunity. Also, a special thank you to my wife Janice, and Dean, for their support of a coach’s life.”

Meyer accumulated a 186-140 record at Cullman High School.
