High school football: Calhoun coach Williamson resigns

1:00 AM, Oct. 05, 2013 EDT

Calhoun football coach Bill Williamson resigned Thursday, halfway through the season.

Williamson was 6-19 in 2½ seasons leading the Tigers, including 1-4 this year.

Hense Ellis and Dewayne Williams were to coach Calhoun on Friday night at Luverne, Williamson said.

Ellis was Williamson's assistant this year, while he and Williams were assistant coaches last season. Athletic director Jim Hunter said he would recommend that Williams serve as interim head coach.

"I have been ineffective in teaching the players the discipline they need for this football program and life in general," Williamson said Friday. "My wife and I care about the team and pray for each of the players to have success in their futures."

Williamson declined further comment.

Williamson, 66, was a head coach at Lowndes County High and Highland Home in the 1970s and '80s before a 30-year career in insurance.

He took over Calhoun's program in 2011. The Tigers were 2-8 in his first season and 3-7 last year.
