Lamar High’s football coach resigns
Corey Fountain, head varsity football coach for Lamar High School, announced his resignation last week.
Fountain, who has been the Silver Foxes’ head coach for the past three years, is leaving to pursue other professional opportunities, the Darlington County School District said in a news release.
The (Florence) Morning News said Fountain would become football coach at Clinton High School.
“I am sad to see him go but I wish him all the best,” said Kathy Gainey, principal of Lamar High School. “Coach Fountain is a great football coach. More importantly, he has great character and a great heart for our students and school.”
Fountain, who coached his team to two state championship titles, a runner-up title, and several undefeated seasons, was chosen as the 2017 Class A Upper-State Coach of the Year by the South Carolina Football Coaches Association.
The school will begin the search for a new head football coach in the next few weeks.
