Tigerville, SC – North Greenville University football coach Carroll McCray announced his resignation Monday to take a similar position at his alma mater, Gardner Webb University, a Division I Football Championship Series institution in Boiling Springs, NC.
McCray was in Tigerville for one season and the Crusaders were 5-6 overall, but won five of their last six contests under the veteran coach. NGU Athletic Director Jan McDonald said that an immediate search will begin for a new coach.
North Greenville’s new coach will be on center stage for college football and professional scouts on Saturday, March 23 when the NCAA Division II University hosts the South Carolina College All-Star Bowl at Younts Stadium. Former Clemson coach Danny Ford will coach the Upstate team, and South Carolina State legend Willie Jeffries, will handle the Low Country team.
The Bowl’s Commissioner is Sam Wyche, who spent eight years playing in the NFL and coached the Cincinnati Bengals. The Greenville County resident will help showcase this great opportunity for players from South Carolina to play one last game with live television coverage throughout the state, and enhance their opportunities to play at the next level in front of pro scouts.
