Five weeks into the 2013 high school football season, there is already a football coaching casualty.
Jason Busby who was hired to replace Troy Hughes at Richland during the summer is no longer the head man of the Raider program.
Instead he will join the Giles County coaching staff under first year coach Walt Smith and coach wide receivers.
"I'm looking forward to having Jason coach wide receivers for us," Giles County head coach Walt Smith said
The Giles County school system and Busby mutually agreed to part ways for the good of the program and Busby will be allowed to join the Bobcat coaching staff.
"We all sit down and talked about it and I felt the best thing for all parties involved was to let Coach Busby go over and coach at Giles County," Giles County Superintendent of Schools Tim Webb said.
The one thing that is unclear is whether Busby resigned or was fired as no one will comment on it.
"Situations came up were I thought some coaching code of ethics in trust and loyalty were violated," Busby said.
"After speaking with administration and superintendent both parties mutually agreed that it would be best for the program and myself for me to transfer and be an assistant at Giles County High. I will still teach special education at Richland."
Richland has named Raider Defensive Coordinator Lanny Rich to take over the program for the rest of the year according to Webb.
"Coach Rich is going to lead the Richland program for the rest of football season," Webb said.
The Raiders are winless on the season at 0-5 and only scored 46 points this year.
