The good news at Alabama is athletic director and retired football coach Frank Thomas went back to work yesterday after a lengthy absence from the job due to a heart attack he sustained last year. Jeff Coleman had served as acting athletic director during Thomas' illness. Also, five former Alabama players have been named as head coaches on the high school level. Doug Lockridge takes over at Valley High; Bill Caden-head assumes the duties at Coffee High in Florence; Bill Abston is the new coach at Thomaston; Bob Cochran is the new football, basketball, and baseball head coach at Sandersville, Ga., and Norwood Hodges is the new football and baseball coach at Albert G. Parrish in Selma.
