Dale has had a 30-year career in Logistics and Operations Management. He has served in roles such as Customer Service Manager, National Account Manager, Director of Finance and most recently Director of Operations.
Coach Well’s football coaching career started in 2004, and over that time, he has led multiple teams to many years of high-level success. From 2015-2018, he served as head coach at Bon Lin Middle School with a record of 29-1, Director of Middle School Football for Bartlett City Schools, and Bartlett’s Football Booster Club President.
