After two Texas high school football state championships, John Walsh is no longer the head coach at Denton Guyer. Walsh announced his resignation Monday.

Last year, Walsh led the Wildcats to the 6A Division II state championship game where they lost to Westlake 24-0, finishing No. 47 in the High School Football America 100 national rankings. Walsh, who is the only head football coach in Guyer’s football history, finishes with a 131-56 record with a 2-2 record in state championship game appearances.

Below is part of a statement that Walsh released to the Denton Record-Chronicle.

“This has been an incredibly difficult time personally and for my family. Through these adverse times and changes we must be at our best. I have preached we grow more from failure than we do in prosperity, and I plan to grow during this tough time.”
