COVINGTON, Ga. — After three seasons as head coach of the Alcovy football program, Chris Edgar has resigned as of Friday afternoon, according to multiple reports and a letter from Edgar himself which confirmed the announcement. The full text of the letter can be viewed at

"Three years ago, I was chosen for my dream job of representing Alcovy as the head football coach," Edgar wrote. "During that time, I invested my time, sweat, blood, energy and personal finances to bring honorable attention to my players and school. Unfortunately, we were not able to put together enough wins. With that said, I officially resign my position as the head football coach of Alcovh High School. This resignation will be effective immediately." 

Edgar went on to thank Alcovy principal, Dr. Sandra Owens and athletic director, Dr. Kristopher Williams "for the opportunity to serve as head coach." 

Edgar and the Tigers finished the 2018 season with a 2-8 record overall and an 0-5 mark in Region 3-AAAAAA. The winless region stint marked the third straight season Alcovy has failed to win a region game. 

Despite that, Alcovy saw a record nine seniors get offered full or partial college football scholarships. Edgar's program has seen 20 student-athletes receive college scholarships over the last three seasons. 

Edgar’s been on staff at the school since it opened back in 2006. The Tigers haven’t finished a season with better than four wins since the 2013 Kirk Hoffman-led squad finished 7-4 and got eliminated in the first round of the Class AAAAAA playoffs.
