PROSPERITY —Mid-Carolina High School Head Football Coach and Athletic Director Louie Alexander has decided to step down from his positions after 13 years with the Rebels.
“It’s been a great ride, but we haven’t been as successful as I want the team to be, and I think the best decision was me stepping down,” Alexander said.
Alexander will continue to serve as Athletic Director for the remainder of the school year.
Alexander said that telling his players and coaches he was stepping down was hard.
“It was tough on the kids because they are great kids and that parts always hard, it was just something that in the best interest of myself and my family, it was just time to step away. Having those conversations with coaches and kids is never easy,” he said. “My time at MCHS has been great and I’ve worked with really good principals, teachers, coaches and mentors for our kids, that’s the hard part. I’ve been here 13 years and every day I did the absolute best that I could and people that know me will attest to that.”
Alexander added that he is blessed to have built relationships with coaches, teachers and kids and he will miss them as he moves on.
