After two years as the head football coach at Marshall County, Aaron Pitts has resigned his coaching position in order to spend more time with his family.
"I've got three boys, one that's eight and twins that are four and I want to take a year or two off to see them grow," Pitts said. "I could coach next year but I really want to see my guys take the next step getting bigger."
Pitts complied a 9-13 record but despite the losing record, The Tigers made the 4A playoffs both seasons.
They were 4-7 last season and were beat by Signal Mountain in first round of the playoffs.
Pitts will continue to teach at Marshall County next year.
"The administration at Marshall County have been nothing but supportive since I've been here and that's a good thing, this was just based on a family decision.
Before coming back to Marshall County where he served as Offensive coordinator from 2007 to 2010, he was named the head coach at Stratford in January of 2012, but left without coaching a game for the Marshall County job in July of 2012.
He also served as offensive coordinator at Warren County as well.
"Aaron is one of the finest young coaches I've ever been around his character is second to no one," Marshall County Athletic Director Kevin McGehee said. "He will be a credit to any school or program he is part of and the kids love and respect him and so does our faculty."
Currently there are open jobs at Mt. Juliet Christian, Northeast, Middle Tennessee Christian, Fairley and Jackson Christian as schools currently looking for a head coach.
