Vic Grider, who accepted the job as head football coach at Coahulla Creek in Whitfield County, Ga., has decided to back away from that commitment and remain at South Pittsburg High School as assistant principal, athletic director and softball coach.
Grider was told on Thursday he would not be receiving a portion of the financial package that was in the original offer. The veteran coach quickly changed his mind about the deal and changed his mind about coaching the Colts.
The real snag to the deal came when Whitfield County Schools superintendent Dr. Judy Gilreath the money proposed for bringing in as many as eight assistaant coaches would not be part of the deal.
