Forsythe, a MCHS alum, told his team Tuesday at practice that he was resigning and would not be their coach for the upcoming season.
“Steve loves McNairy Central and has worked hard as a basketball coach,” said MCHS Principal Mickey Murphy. “He is a good teacher and I am proud he is part of our faculty.”
Murphy said the school would place the vacancy on the TSSAA website this afternoon and announce it locally to any teachers that would like to apply for the position.
“We want to move as quickly as we can to get a new coach,” said Murphy. “We are going to all we can to move this program forward. We want to get the very best coach possible and make our boys basketball program as good as we can make it.”
Forsythe was the coach for seven seasons and compiled an 85-110 record during that span. He began as head coach 2006-2007 and that team compiled the best record (20-10) during his tenure at MCHS.
