Five months after winning the school’s first state football championship, Manzano HIgh School finds itself without a head coach.
In a stunning development, Chad Adcox has resigned that position. He informed his team Thursday night as they received their rings, and the resignation became effective Friday.
“Today is brutally tough,” Adcox said Friday. “But I think for the long haul, this is the right decision.”
He compiled a 45-25 record in six seasons with Manzano, and his last victory was a 14-7 triumph over La Cueva in December’s Class 6A state final that completed a 13-0 campaign for the Monarchs.
