Coach Bridges began his career in Jefferson Davis County, coaching for two years before coming to Lawrence County, where he has coached for 14 years. During this time, he has received many honors, including 2015 Daily Leader Coach of the Year, 2018 Division 7-4A Coach of the Year, and coach back to back district champion teams in 2018 and 2019.

Bridges and his wife of 17 years, Cassie, live in Silver Creek with their two daughters, Jordyn and Laicie. Jordyn is a senior and Laicie is a freshman at Lawrence County High School. Cassie works as the Principal of Rod Paige Middle School, and she and Pat both serve on the Board of Aldermen for Silver Creek.
