LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) Dudley Hilton is stepping down as head coach at Taylor County and he is going back to Bell County. Hilton took over the Cardinals program in September of 2014 after resigning at the University of Pikeville.
Hilton went 16-and-14 with Taylor County, but his greatest success was at Bell County during two different stints. Hilton has three state titles under his belt, two at Bell County in 1991 and 2008.
In 1997, Hilton took over a struggling program at Bourbon County and led it to the Class AA state championship in his first season, wrapping it up with a 39-28 win over Owensboro Catholic.
Hilton has 361 all-time wins at the high school level and, when he left for UPike after the 2010 season, he was the winningest coach in Kentucky high school history.
