Terry Crowder, who led Chattahoochee’s football team to a state championship in 2010, told his players Tuesday morning that he is leaving the program after eight seasons.
Crowder told AJC.com that he has another job in metro Atlanta but can’t comment until it is approved at a school board meeting Thursday. Metro job openings that have been reported are at Creekside, Creekview, Dacula, Duluth, M.L. King, Mays, North Forsyth, North Springs, South Cobb and Westlake.
“Chattahoochee has been so good to me, and we were able to accomplish some good things; it’s just a special, special place,’’ Crowder said. “It was a decision based on what’s best for my family. I’m going to miss everybody here. It’s just awful right now.’’
Crowder came to Chattahoochee in 2004 from Camden County, where he was an assistant on Camden’s 2003 Class AAAAA championship team. Crowder was 60-40 in nine seasons at Chattahoochee. The Cougars were 7-4 last season playing in Region 6-AAAAAA.
Chattahoochee’s 2010 team was 15-0 and led by all-classification state player of the year quarterback Tim Byerly.
