The Arizona Coaches Association (ACA) was found in 1946 to unite coaches for the betterment of Arizona athletes. The ACA's objectives are to provide a united body to represent and speak for the coaches in all sports of the State of Arizona, promote high ethics and standards of athletics for coaches and youth of Arizona, and provide all-star competition for coaches and players. The ACA incorporated in the state of Arizona on April 20, 1992.

In late 2002, the football coaches within the ACA wanted to provide specific services to football coaches. The football coaches decided to develop their own entity to organize and raise funds for their events. The organization developed a constitution and elected board members in early 2003. The newly formed Arizona Football Coaches Association (AzFCA) continued to run their events under the umbrella of the ACA.

On January 26, 2008, the AzFCA Board of Directors and present members elected Lee Brush as the first Executive Director. At the same meeting, all members voted by a unanimous decision to separate from the ACA and form its own non-profit organization to better serve its members.

Membership has grown from around 400 to over 1000 registered coaches. The AzFCA Board of Directors has consisted of the following members:

  • 2003 - 2005
    • President, Tim McBurney (Basha High School)
    • Vice President, Larry Fetkenhier (Cactus High School)
    • Secretary, Mike Brown (Greenway High School)
  • 2005 - 2007
    • President, Richard Sanchez (Sunnyside High School)
    • Vice President, Derek Wahlstrom (Northwest Christian High School)
    • Secretary, Mike Brown (Greenway High School)
