Henryetta high school head football coach Darin Johnson has announced his resignation.
Johnson took over the head coaching position some five years ago.
In a short, one paragraph letter to Henreytta superintendent Dwayne Noble, Johnson said he:
"came to Henryetta with the hopes of having a long successful career here. I was born and raised here. I was a member of the first class of Knights. I will always have a very special place in my heart for this community and school. I unfortunately will no longer be filling the responsibilities of being the Head Football Coach. In my stint here as coach I want you all to know I poured my heart and soul into all the young people I had the fortune to coach. I feel as though the program was successful in a lot of ways but the bottom line is we did not win enough games. It is my hope that the next coach has the success I was striving for. I wish the best for the program and the school and I sincerely thank you for the time you allowed me to be a part of your kids lives. I will fulfill the remainder of my teaching contract here in Henryetta and step down as the Head Football coach effective immediately. May God bless you all."
