Neil Furnish has resigned after two seasons as the head football coach at Northwest high school and will pursue other opportunities according a school press release.
“I first want to say thank you to all the young men and women that I had the privilege to work with at Northwest High School. I have learned many things in my short time at Northwest and I pray that I have made a positive impact on my students and the student athletes in the game of football. I would also like to thank the parents that supported me and the young men who bought into me and my coaching staff over the past two seasons. Thank you all and best wishes to the future successes of all that attend,” Furnish said.
