Career for Whitehouse head coach coming to end

Posted: Updated:

(KYTX) - After coaching nearly a decade, Randy McFarlin must leave the wildcats.

Athletic trainer Riley Hendrix will miss him.

"He's a great coach, great leader." she says.

Two years ago this month, McFarlin and his family suffered a terrible car accident near Daingerfield, leaving McFarlin in the ICU for about a month.

Now, he's back to coaching, but despite his wins on the field, he's not coming back after this season.

"There are only two kinds of coaches in this business, those who have been fired and those who are going to be fired." says McFarlin.

We talked to him about the school district's decision Tuesday.

"Sometimes it doesn't matter what the community wants." he says.

While superintendent Daniel Dupree did not address the reason for letting McFarlin go, he said in a statement the school wants to "make the best decisions in hiring the right people to help our students achieve success." Dupree went on to say, "The district appreciates Coach McFarlin's contributions to our athletic program over the course of his employment."

Whitehouse football player Kostin Wallace says he'll miss his coach.

"No matter what it is, we're all there for each other and we stand strong together."
