Chris Martin resigns at Broughton

Broughton High School will need a new head football coach this fall.

Chris Martin told HighSchoolOT.com that he resigned from his position on Wednesday.

"I just thought maybe it was time for someone else to come in, maybe I'm not the one getting it done and I just want what's best for the kids," Martin said.

Martin has been the head football coach at Broughton the last nine seasons, compiling an overall record of 45-60 in that time.

He said the Cap 8 Conference is one of the toughest conferences in the state.

"When I first got here, our conference maybe wasn't that good," said Martin. "But in the last ten years we've had some big time coaches come in, coaches who work really hard, and now I'd say our conference is one of the best in the state from top to bottom."

The decision wasn't an easy one for Martin.

"I love the kids, I love the school and I love the community," he said. "That's not it. I just think it's time for something new and I want what's best for them."

Martin doesn't plan to leave Broughton. He will stay at the school as a teacher and said he told the administration he is open to being an assistant coach for whoever they hire to replace him.

"I will listen to anybody, and that's what I told them," Martin said. "I want to help get Broughton back to to the top."

Last season, the Capitals compiled a 2-9 overall record, including a 2-5 mark in the Cap 8. It was only the second time in Martin's nine-year career he missed the state playoffs.
