After back to back Class 4A playoff appearances, Jay Emmons has resigned as head football coach at Spring Hill.
Emmons, 44, led the Raiders to a 13-12 overall record and two 4A playoff appearances losing both years to Marshall County.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for allowing me to lead this team for the past two years. I am proud of what we accomplished, and I look forward to the team’s continued future success,” Emmons said.
The Raiders are coming off a 6-6 campaign that saw them lost to Marshall County in the second round and in 2016, Spring Hill made the Quarterfinals for the first time since making the Class 1A Semifinals back in 1992.
