Through a storied athletic history, only one coach has ever won a TSSAA state championship at Haywood High School.
On Wednesday, Kendall Dancy resigned as the boys basketball coach after leading them to the 2015 Class AA state championship.
“It was the right time because it is home and we are up,” Dancy said. “We are returning some really talented players that work hard. You always want to leave something better than you find it, especially when it pertains to home.”
