Central Clay County High School head coach Kris Herron has resigned after five seasons at the helm. Herron won 41 games as the Vols head coach and made the playoffs each season. His resignation marks the end of a journey that started 28 years ago. TV24 Sports spoke with Herron on Friday evening and the coach says it is the culmination of a plan he and his wife set into motion nearly three decades ago.
