Tate High Head Football Coach Ed Rigby Resigns
January 27, 2012
Tate High School head football coach Ed Rigby submitted his resignation Thursday following a winless season.
“I can confirm that I spoke to Coach Rigby today and he has resigned his position as head football coach,” Tate High Principal Rick Shackle said Thursday afternoon. “We are certainly very grateful for his commitment and dedication and wish him the very best.”
Shackle would not confirm if Rigby would remain at Tate in any other position.
The application process to replace Rigby will be immediately, the principal said, following district guidelines.
Rigby has been at Tate six seasons, with a 22-39 overall record. He took over the Tate program in 2006, becoming the Aggies’ third coach in just eight months. He led the team to the playoffs in 2008, their first appearance in eight years and just their third playoff appearance since a 1980 state championship.
The Aggies were 0-11 in 2011.
