STOCKBRIDGE — Stockbridge High head football coach Kevin Whitley has been linked to a move following a 10-year stint with the Tigers program.

According to the Georgia High School Football Historians Association Whitley has compiled a 99-28 overall record over 10 years with five region titles, four of which were in a row from 2014-2017.

In 2018, the Tigers fell to Dutchtown and missed the region title but also posted a 12-2 overall record.

County Athletic Director Curt Miller chimed in on the announcement with his own words Monday afternoon.

“I want to take a moment to say thank you to Kevin Whitley,” Miller said. “Over the past 10 years, I have witnessed all of the successes you have had with football at Stockbridge High School. From the playoffs to getting kids scholarships. You and I have had countless phone calls about other stuff and our conversations made me realize how awesome of a man you are. I am sad right now for Henry County but I will always celebrate your time with us and wish you all the best in the future. Finally, my girls will miss you. They always looked forward to seeing Coach Whit.”

Similar comments came out across social media from former players and coaches that he’s been around.

Whitley declined to comment when the Henry Herald reached out to him.
