Mike Dickerson has resigned at Smith County after six seasons.
He led his alma mater Smith County to five Class 3A playoff appearances and has stepped down to spend more time with his family.
“I’m appreciative of the opportunity Mr. Smith and Mr. Towns have given me to coach my alma mater. It was time for me to be a dad and spend more time with my family,” Dickerson said.
Dickerson finished with a 33-34 overall record in Carthage as the Owls made the playoffs four straight seasons (2015-18) and their best season was in 2017 when they finished 9-4 and made the 3A Quarterfinals.
The Owls finished 4-7 this season after losing to undefeated Red Bank in the first round last week.
“I would like to thank Coach Mike Dickerson for the many years of service to the Smith County High School football program. I have the utmost respect for Coach Dickerson and appreciate all of the hard work he and his staff have put into the program. He is an outstanding person, and I am grateful for the positive influence he has had on the many young men that have come through the football program during his coaching tenure,” Smith County principal Tim Towns said.
There are currently 12 programs looking for a head coach they are: Boyd Buchanan, Carter, Cumberland County, East Hickman, Fayetteville, Hillcrest, Hunters Lane, Smith County, Sweetwater, Tellico Plains, Westview and White County
