Grahams resigns in Mount Pleasant
Wednesday, 20th November 2013 - 11:46AM
Mart Graham has decided to resign as the AD/Head Football Coach at Mount Pleasant High School.
Graham informed his staff on Tuesday morning and the players in the afternoon.
Graham told David Smoak, "I've been in this business for 32-years, and I just time," Graham added, "I have rotten knees, I have high blood pressure, and quite frankly we had such high expectations this past season and with the injuries mounting up, it's just worn me out."
Graham told Smoak, "I will stay here within the school district, the superintendent asked me to hang around."
Mount Pleasant was 16-24 in Graham's four years as the head football coach.
