Marion County Football Coach Resigns Amid Vandalism Controversy
In the ever-widening controversy surrounding Marion County High School, the football team's head coach, Mac McCurry, has resigned, according to Marion County High School Principal Larry Ziegler.
As we reported yesterday
, two of McCurry's assistant coaches have been arrested
and face criminal charges associated with vandalism to the school's field house. The obscene graffiti was spray-painted the night before the football game against rival South Pittsburg, and it was written as if the vandalism may have been done by someone associated with South Pittsburg.
Now however, newly-released text messages between Marion County coaches indicate the vandalism was a conspiracy designed to motivate Marion County and implicate South Pittsburg supporters.. and that coach McMurry knew in advance of the plan.
As the Marion County football team continues in the playoffs
, Larry Richards will take over as interim football coach. Richards is the assistant softball coach at Marion County High as well as a full-time career technology teacher at the school.
