Mark Williams has resigned after leading the Gallatin football program the last seven years.
Williams led the Green Wave to a 40-37 record and five Class 5A playoff appearances (2013, 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018).
The Green Wave’s best season under Williams came back in 2013 as Gallatin made the 5A Quarterfinals and finished the season at 8-5, the other four playoff appearances all ended with first round losses.
“Coach Williams has been a valuable member of our school not only as a coach but a teacher and we welcome for he and his wife to stay on as teachers here at Gallatin,” Gallatin principal Ron Becker said.
“He has led the football program the last seven years but he felt it was the right time for him and his family to step away as football coach and we truly respect his decision and we will name an interim coach to get us through the offseason program.”
There are currently 19 programs looking for a head coach they are: Bledsoe County, Boyd Buchanan, Brighton, Carter, Cumberland County, East Hickman, Fayetteville, Gallatin, Hillcrest, Hunters Lane, Lipscomb Academy, Melrose, Northwest, Smith County, Sweetwater, Tellico Plains, Walker Valley, Westview and White County
