CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) -

Just four days after agreeing to become the new head football coach at Coahulla Creek, Vic Grider has informed school administrators he will no longer take the job.

Whitfield County Schools Superintendent Dr. Judy Gilreath told Grider by phone Thursday that a portion of the supplements he was promised would not be made available for the position, leading him to opt out and remain at South Pittsburg High, where he is an assistant principal, athletic director and softball coach.

"Choosing a new job can be a life-changing decision for anyone to make," Gilreath said in a press release. "We understand Coach Grider's decision to pass on this offer and appreciate his consideration."

Gilreath added that the reason for Grider's decision was "due to a misunderstanding about the total amount of supplements that would be available for this position."

After a week of game planning for Central Michigan, it's clear Tull and Rayl will need to record a few more to stay perfect against the MAC.More
