Manley Resigns at Pittsburg...
Wednesday, 19th December 2012 - 10:15AM
Robert Manley has turned in his resignation as AD/Head Football Coach at Pittsburg High School and the school board will vote to accept it tonight.

Manley told David Smoak, "It's just time to move on, I've had a nice run in this great part of Texas, but the past two years have been very difficult with the death of my father a year ago, and my mother's health hasn't been very good either." Manley continued, "And, honestly, I want to be with her up where she lives in Oklahoma."

Manley was 40-28 in six-years as head coach at Pittsburg, and is 112-70 overall during his time at Pittsburg, Clarksville and Honey Grove.

Pittsburg superintendent Judy Pollan told Smoak, "Coach Manley has been wonderful for this school district and we wanted to work with him in making sure he left on his terms, and we appreciate everything he's done for the student-athletes and community here in Pittsburg."

Manley added, "Who knows, I might one day get back into the coaching profession, but if not, it will be in helping high school student athletes continue their dream of playing in college."
