CHOCTAW Louisville head football coach Tony Stanford has resigned his position to become an assistant coach at Choctaw Central.
With 25 years already to his credit in the public school system, Stanford will be able to draw his retirement and still work at the tribal school.
Stanford's previous coaching stops include Kosciusko (assistant), Philadelphia (head), Neshoba Central (assistant) and Morton (head), with the last eight years as head coach at Louisville.
At one point this summer, Stanford was considered to be in the running for the head coach position at CCHS. Whether he'll stay an assistant or move up to head coach for the 2004 season remains to be seen.
The Warriors, who compete in Division 5-3A, were 3-7 in 2002.
Stanford was head coach at Philadelphia in 1986 when the Tornadoes played Choctaw Central for the first time, winning 21-0 on the Pearl River reservation.
Louisville is expected to turn its head coaching chores over to John Mullins for the 2003 season.
