Scotland football coach Chip Williams resigns
LAURINBURG - Scotland High School's Chip Williams has stepped down as football coach after leading the team to the state 4-A football title last December.
Williams could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
Rodney Quick, an assistant coach on the Scotland team, confirmed that Williams made his announcement at Monday's regular meeting of the Scotland County Board of Education.
Williams, who built New Bern into an Eastern power before eventually coming to Scotland, guided the Fighting Scots to a 15-0 record last season.
They defeated Indian Trial Porter Ridge 42-16 in the state 4-A title game at Winston-Salem's BB&T Stadium.
