Longtime mid state coach Scott Smith was hired in late January as the new head coach at Glencliff but he will not coach a game on the Colt sideline.

Smith has stepped down four months after getting the job citing health concerns as the reason for the resignation.

Metro Nashville Athletic Director Roosevelt Sanders confirmed the resignation.

“He has resigned from what I’ve been told for health as well as family issues,” Sanders said.

Attempts to contact Smith and Glencliff principal Clint Wilson went unanswered.

Smith has had success at his head coaching stops as he has been a head coach for 20 seasons and most notably won a 1A state championship at Ezell Harding back in 2001.

He was the head coach at Greenbrier (1989-90), Ezell Harding (1999-2003), Independence (2004-06), Science Hill (2007-09), Moore County (2010-13), Warren County (2014) and Franklin County (2015-16) and his overall coaching record is 148-88.

Glencliff will enter the 2017 season with a 16 game losing streak and the Colts haven’t won a playoff game since 1999, the year they finished runner up in Class 5A to Sevier County.

Currently there are two schools in Bledsoe County and Zion Christian looking for a head coach.
