Rose leaving Smiths Station after six years

Posted: Updated:

Mark Rose is stepping off the Smiths Station football sideline after six seasons.

The coach announced today that he has accepted a job at North Jackson High School in Stevenson, Ala., pending school board approval.

Rose guided the Panthers to a state quarterfinal berth, playing a home playoff game for the first time since 1997.

According to the Chattanooga (Tenn.) Times-Free Press, Rose informed the team of his decision in a team meeting on Wednesday.

In six seasons at Smiths Station, Rose went 34-31 overall and made the playoffs three times. He has previously coached at North Jackson, from 2000-08, where he went 85-15, including four 10-0 seasons.

Rose has said he will stay at Smiths Station until the beginning of March to help seniors navigate the Feb. 5 National Signing Day.
