Cary "Mac" McCurry was fired as football coach at Marshall County High School yesterday afternoon following a tumultuous postseason in Lewisburg.

A statement released by Director of Schools John David Pierce said only that a new direction for the football team was needed, and he declined to elaborate when asked.
McCurry, 47, believes the reason for his firing is simple.
"It boils down to playing time issues at one of the most prominent positions on the field," he said.
...
McCurry was asked to resign his job last Monday, a few days after Pierce received a petition signed by 30 players that requested his removal as coach.One of the complaints voiced by parents was that he used condescending language.
McCurry was granted a public forum to "clear his name" last Thursday and received a standing ovation from many who attended.
"I felt better," McCurry said."But in the public school system now, all the hiring and firing comes down to one person."
According to McCurry, 65 percent of the players who signed the petition and were surveyed by Pierce said he was a fair coach and should be retained.The same 65 percent also said McCurry made condescending remarks.
Starting quarterback Kevin Bishop is one of the players who said McCurry was treated unjustly.
...
McCurry said he will seek a new head coaching position in the coming months, even if it means moving with his wife, Connie, to another state.
"I feel like I have a few more years of that in me," McCurry said.
