J.F. Webb High School will need a new football coach this fall.
Brian Currin stepped down as the head football coach on Wednesday, athletic director Rick Givens confirmed to HighSchoolOT.com.
"(Currin) is going to UNC to take part in an accounting program, so he's stepping away from teaching and coaching all together. It really had nothing to do with football," Givens said.
Currin has been the football coach at Webb for four seasons, taking over for John Hammett after the 2008 season. In that four year period, Currin's teams compiled an overall record of 16-29.
"In a small community like this you go in cycles," said Givens.
But for Givens the most important measure of success is off the field and in the classroom. Givens said the next coach will have to share that same belief.
"We want to continue the success that we've had, and I'm not just talking about on the field. Our kids graduate and and we want someone who will continue that in the classroom," he said.
Givens expects a number of coaches to apply for the position.
"We had a number of good candidates apply when Brian got the job, and I've already had some people contact me about it," said Givens.
