In 2018, Birdsong came to Enterprise to serve as assistant baseball coach under new coach Lee Hyde and also coached the EHS freshman football team’s defensive line.
Birdsong was slated to coach the defensive backs and receivers on the freshman football team and continue his role on the baseball team in 2019.
