McLendon gives statement on resignation

Earlier today, the announcement that Josh McLendon, head football coach and athletic director for Greenville High School, stepped down from the school’s athletic program was made.

Butler County Superintendent Joseph Eiland said McLendon sited personal reasons for resigning.

“I was recently informed by Greenville High School administration that was their wish to move the GHS football program in a different direction,” McLendon said. “This led me to make the difficult decision to step down as the GHS head football coach and athletic director. Although I will no longer be serving in these positions, I will remain employed with the Butler County School System. Over the past seven years, I have enjoyed serving alongside the coaching staff and working with the student athletes. I thank them for their dedication to the GHS football program and I wish them all continued success.”
