Singletary steps down in Moultrie

November 10, 2004

Moultrie - Colquitt County head football coach Mike Singletary has resigned after five seasons.

Singletary's resignation comes five days after the Packers first round state playoff loss to defending state champion Camden County.

Colquitt County School superintendent Leonard McCoy says Singletary agreed to resign after a meeting with Singletary, McCoy and Colquitt County High School principal Bob Jones on Wednesday.

McCoy says the three mutually agreed that it was time for the program to move in a different direction.

Mike Singletary was an assistant for former Colquitt County coach Jim Hughes for 12 seasons and became the Packers head coach when Hughes retired five years ago.

 In Singletary's first two seasons, Colquitt County posted a 15- 7 record but the Packers record the last three seasons in 17-15.

Also, Colquitt County was 0-4 in the state playoffs under Singletary.

Superintendent Leonard McCoy calls Mike Singletary a first class act all the way.

McCoy says Colquitt County will advertise their head football coaching position far and wide with the goal of hiring the best person to lead the Packers.
