His marriage to Brown was strained by his rare acting engagements and vices, and the pair separated in 1986. He became a born-again Christian the same year and began to change his life.

Autry married Kimberlee Green in 1994, and they had a daughter together, Heather, from a previous marriage. In 1997, the pair founded Dirt Road Productions, which produced The Legend of Jake Kincaid, a television film in which Alan functioned as producer, director, and screenplay, as well as starring with Green and son Austin.


Autry was a standout quarterback for Riverdale High School and won a scholarship to the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California, after graduating in 1970. When the Green Bay Packers picked him as a backup quarterback in 1975, he had a Bachelor of Arts degree and intended to be a teacher.

In 1976, he started three games before being released by then-coach Bart Starr the following year. After retiring from sports, he tracked down a buddy who had once introduced him to film director Robert Altman and moved to Hollywood to pursue acting.

Remember My Name, directed by Robert Altman, starred Autry (then known as Carlos Brown) in a brief role in 1978.Autry had guest appearances on a number of television shows during the 1980s, including Cheers, The A-Team, Dukes of Hazzard, and Newhart. He was also sucked into Hollywood’s drug and alcohol addictions.

He was cast as Sergeant “Bubba” Skinner in the television series In the Heat of the Night, which also starred Carroll O’Connor, in 1988. The show lasted till 1995.

Autry was elected mayor of Fresno, California, in November 2000, after campaigning as a Republican. In 2004, he was re-elected with more than 72% of the vote. He kept a balanced budget with a surplus as mayor without reducing municipal employees. He was a staunch backer of Proposition 8, California’s anti-gay marriage law.

He launched an effort to end homelessness in Fresno in 2004 by ordering sweeps of homeless encampments in the city’s downtown. The program, according to a federal judge, violates the 4th and 5th Amendment rights of homeless persons by destroying property without due process.

Despite his initial opposition to the verdict, Autry eventually realized that Fresno’s homeless policy was unfair and publicly apologized to the homeless population. Autry worked with the Fresno City Council in the closing months of his final tenure as mayor to draft a 10-year strategy to combat chronic homelessness.

  2. I’m a 73 yr old dog walker for my, bed-bound, 86 yr old neighbor.
    After the morning dog walk, I sit with her for an hour and we watch the full “In the Heat of the Night” series, one episode per day, on her Roku TV.
    Sgt Bubba Skinner is one of our favorite characters and I enjoyed reading his biography above.
    We are currently on season 5, ep 8.
    I enjoy the show more now than when I was younger.
