Head football coach Derrick Burroughs is resigning to become the defensive coordinator at Jackson State in Mississippi.
"My need for winning a championship exceeded Lane's need," said Burroughs. "The program is in a better place."
Under the helm of Burroughs, Lane's football team got better year after year. This season, the Dragons finished 6-4, their first winning season since 1995.
"It was hard. I saw disappointment in some of them. I was more than just a coach," explains Burroughs who broke the news to his team on Tuesday afternoon.
Burroughs said his experience at Lane was a great learning lesson and he'll miss the bond with his players.

Jacoby Jones homecoming: Lane, Burroughs enjoy visit from NFL star
Lane head football coach Derrick Burroughs has seen the best wide receivers professional football has to offer up close and personal.
After Lane College's weekly chapel service Wednesday, Burroughs took time to size up Jacoby Jones, a 2009 Lane graduate who is a wide receiver and returns kicks for the Houston Texans of the NFL.
The Texans have a bye week and Jones is visiting the campus this week.
"He's big, fast and hard to cover," Burroughs said without hesitation. "He's 6-2 and runs a 4.3, 4.4 (forty) ... he's elusive and a receiver like that is hard to cover."
A defensive back who played at then-Memphis State University, Burroughs was the first round draft choice of the Buffalo Bills - and the 14th player selected overall - in the 1985 NFL Draft.
"Jacoby (Jones) is exceptional," Burroughs said. "I've been (at Lane) for nearly two years, and no, we don't have a football player like Jacoby. But (like Jones) we have really good kids."
Burroughs began his duties at Lane three seasons after Jones played his final down for the Dragons in 2007, and he felt Jones' appearance Wednesday was only beneficial.
"This is big for our kids, big for Lane College," Burroughs said. "It's important for kids to see they can make it, too, and Jacoby is a classic example."
Burroughs shrugged when asked his thoughts about the mercurial rise Jones made while at Lane and now in professional football.
"In the NFL, all guys are not from Division I schools," Burroughs said.
After chapel, Burroughs asked Jones to speak with members of the Dragons' football team.
