After winning 89 games, seven district championships and the 2007 2A state championship, Carroll submitted his resignation last month before the Cowboys 26-17 playoff loss to Baker County.
Superintendent Lou Miller said Carroll will remain an employee of the district, but will relinquish his duties as head football coach on June 30, 2010. Ben Killingsworth, principal at Madison County High School, will be tasked with hiring a replacement for Carroll who went 89-12-1 in his eight years leading the football program.
Miller, who has been an educator in the county for more than two decades, said Carroll has coached football in the country for more than a quarter century and will leave quite a legacy. Carroll led the junior varsity team when Randy McPherson was the varsity head coach in the 90s.
