Use in-file Javascript with AngularJS and Apache Tiles

I have been learning AngularJs and currently have an application that uses Apache Tiles. Prior to adding AngularJs to the application, I had a working piece of code inside my footer tile that calculated the current year that looks like this:

footer.html

    <script type="text/javascript">
          var year = new Date().getFullYear();
    </script>

    <tr ng-Controller="AppController">
       <td>Created <script>document.write(year)</script>
       </td>
    </tr>

controller.js

    var controllers = {};
    controllers.AppController = ['$scope', function ($scope) {
    $scope.currentYear = new Date().getFullYear();
    }];
    proxy.controller(controllers);

app.js

     var proxy = angular.module('proxy',['ngRoute'])
           .config(function($routeProvider) {
            $routeProvider.when('/index',{
                 templateUrl: 'search.jsp',
                 controller: 'AppController'
            });
     });

The footer now only shows "Created" on the index.html page. Is there a way with angular that I can successfully calculate the year? Why does the JS in this file stop working when AngularJs is added to the application?

Since you're using AngularJS, you can write the code like this:

<script type="text/javascript">
        angular.module('app', []).controller('YearController', ['$scope', function ($scope) {

            $scope.currentYear = new Date().getFullYear();

        }]);
</script>

<table ng-app="app">
    <tr ng-controller="YearController">
        <td>
            Created {{currentYear}}
        </td>
    </tr>
</table>

Edit: This is how it would look like if it was in it's own separate HTML and JavaScript files.

index.html:

<!DOCTYPE html >
<html>
<head>
    <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/angular.js/1.5.0-beta.2/angular.js"></script>
    <script src="app.js"></script>
</head>
<body ng-app="app">  
    <div ng-include="'footer.html'"></div>
</body>
</html>

footer.html:

<table>
    <tr ng-controller="YearController">
        <td>
            Created {{currentYear}}
        </td>
    </tr>
</table>

app.js (better to have it's own separate file):

var app = angular.module('app', []);
var controllers = {};
controllers.YearController = ['$scope', function ($scope) {

    $scope.currentYear = new Date().getFullYear();

}];
app.controller(controllers);
