LaGrange Head Football Coach Resigns

LAGRANGE, GA -- LaGrange High School will have a new football coach next season. After 17 years as the Grangers' head coach, Steve Pardue has resigned.

Pardue told the LaGrange Daily News, "I don't like the term retiring. I'm not retiring. I'm just going to change what I'm doing right now."

The Troup County Board of Education could approve a new coach as early as tonight, according to Catherine Holmes, Director of Public Relations for the Troup County School System.

Pardue coached the Grangers to a 161-45 record in his 17 seasons, giving him a lifetime winning percentage of .782. According to www.LaGrangeFootball.com, Pardue's Grangers won eight region championships and three state championships.

Before he was the head coach at LaGrange, Pardue was an assistant for the Grangers and has coached high school football in some capacity since 1985.

Most recently, Pardue led LaGrange to a 5-6 record, but made the playoffs for the eleventh straight year. His Grangers lost to second-seeded White County 28-20.
