Messinger steps down as SC football coach
South Charleston football coach John Messinger has resigned his coaching position.
Messinger compiled a 62-21 record in seven years at the helm, including back-to-back Class AAA state championships in 2008 and 2009.
"It seems like the older you get, the faster time flies,'' the 59-year-old Messinger said on Monday night. "I've just got a heck of a lot of things I need to do, and it's time to move on.''
SC went 11-9 over the past two years, barely missing the playoffs each season.
Messinger said he plans to stay on as a teacher at the high school.
