    Congrat coach on 40 years with the Jags but the time have come for coach hang up the whistle. At 75 he may not realize his stubbornness ways effect the people around him, his assistance coach and the players. I really think the school needs a fresh image, if you don’t think I’m right just ask the assistant coaches and players.
