After 60-plus years and 621 wins as the head football coach at Summerville High School in South Carolina, John McKissick may be ready to step-down as the school’s head football coach.
According to sources, ABC 4 Sports is reporting that America’s all-time winningest high school football coach will step-down before the start of the upcoming season. The TV station is reporting that a news conference announcing Coach McKissick’s retirement could be held sometime during the coming week.
McKissick, who will turn 89 in September, has led the school to ten South Carolina state championships. The station is reporting that McKissick’s grandson Joe McCall, who is the team’s offensive coordinator will be named interim coach until a full-time replacement is found.
Back into 2011, I interviewed Coach McKissick and J.T. Curtis, who is #2 on the all-time wins list, on the High School Football America Radio Show. Curtis is the head coach at John Curtis School in Louisiana. You can listen to that historic interview below.
