Boys' basketball coach Jackson out at SCA

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Sherwood Christian Academy will not renew the contract of head boy's basketball coach Karmarlos Jackson.

SCA Athletic Director says the school wants to go in another direction with the program.

Jackson went 14-14 in his only season with the Eagles.

He tells WALB he was told the reason behind his removal was parent disapproval.

Dixon says he didn't know of any off the court issues that would have ended in dismissal.

"I don't know of anything off the court," Dixon says. "We just wanted to go in a different direction."

The Eagles will now be searching for their fifth head coach in as many seasons.

Dixon says he doesn't believe that will deter candidates from looking into the position.

"Turnover isn't good," he says.

But he adds the school look to drum up local interest in the job.
