CFCA announced the hiring of Richard Hodges as its football head coach Tuesday.

Hodges has more than 30 years of experience in coaching and spent six years as the head coach of Westover in Albany. He has served as an assistant coach at Waynesboro (five years), Crisp County (11 years) and Warner Robins (11 years). He spent the 2013 season as the defensive backs coach at Warner Robins.

“Coach Hodges brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our football program like we have never seen here at CFCA, but more importantly he brings an unmatched testimony of God’s grace in his life,” CFCA head of school Jeremiah Sattazahn said in a release. “He is a man of God who is committed to serving Him through his work with our students and players here at the academy. I couldn’t be more pleased with how the Lord worked in this situation.”

CFCA is moving from the GISA to the GICAA this season.

Hodges went 19-40-1 in his six seasons as the head coach at Westover from 1997 to 2002. He said he recently retired from Warner Robins.

“The opportunity to be a head coach again is very humbling,” Hodges said. “We’re very excited about the opportunity to get to work and build relationships with the players and everyone here at the school.”
