After spending the last decade at Seqouyah including the last four seasons as head coach, Bobby White has resigned at the Madisonville school.
White will stay on and continue to teach Physical Education at Seqouyah but will not coach the next two seasons in order to concentrate on his family as his wife Susan will finish her doctorate degree in Higher Education.
“I have given Sequoyah a decade of my life and the last four years as the head coach and it has been a tremendous opportunity to impact these young men’s lives,” White said.
“At this time I need to step down to focus on my three year old son as my wife completes her doctoral degree. This is not the end for me. I plan to coach again in the future but my wife has sacrificed so much for me over the last 10 years. Now it’s time for me to sacrifice for her.”
White served as the Chiefs Offensive Coordinator the first six years at Seqouyah (2009-14) before becoming the school’s eighth head coach in 2015.
In his four seasons as head coach, the Chiefs made the Class 4A playoffs in 2017 and barely missed the playoffs last season as they finished 5-5 and his overall record there was 17-25.
There are currently seven programs looking for a head coach they are: Bolivar, Bolton, Cocke County, Haywood, Manassas MLK Prep and Seqouyah
