Andy taught and coached at Cherokee County, Cleveland, Oneonta, Fairview, and Cullman. He loved teaching and coaching. Many of his students still remember his interesting and humorous ways of teaching math and coaching. One of his frequent quotes was "Math is simple, not easy."

After his teaching and coaching career, he owned a hardware store and pursued a career in the insurance business. For the past thirteen years, Andy served on the Cullman City Council.
