PINSON VALLEY –After winning multiple state basketball championships at Midfield High School, Darrell Barber announced that he will become the head coach at Pinson Valley High School.
Barber will replace Cedric Lane who was not retained after two seasons.
In a social media post, Barber said he was at peace with his decision to become the Indians head coach.
Barber won state championships in 2012 (4A), 2014 (3A) and 2017 (3A). His teams also made the Final Four in 2011 and 2014.
Midfield was ranked No. 2 in the state by the Alabama Sports Writers Association in 2018, but missed the tournament after the AHSAA ruled the team had played one more regular season game than rules allowed.
