Report: Northwestern HS coach to take job at Clemson


by - Assoc. Editor -

Northwestern high school football head coach Kyle Richardson has resigned on Thursday and will take a job at Clemson as a senior offensive assistant according to multiple reports.

"He’s announced his impending resignation today," said Northwestern athletics director Lauren West to the Rock Hill Herald.

Richardson won two state championships and had an overall record of 58-13 in five seasons at Northwestern and made the playoffs each year. He was the offensive coordinator for four years for the school previously before getting the head coaching position.

"Not a coach that we wanted to lose, but we certainly wish him well," West said. Kyle has taken Northwestern’s football program to the next level, and we’re gonna look to continue that success."

In 2014, he was named NIKE Coach of the Year of the Southeast, Max Preps Coach of the Year for the South and National High School Federation Coach of the Year for South Carolina.
