CANTON — Citing fatigue and wanting to spend more time with his family, Pisgah High's David Pressley announced Tuesday morning he is stepping down as head football coach, but will remain as the school's athletic director.

"I'm very proud of what we were able to accomplish in my 12 seasons at Pisgah,'' Pressley said. "But I'm just tired, so very tired. Plus, coaching has taken me away from my family and time is running out. I want to start giving back to my family. I took the program as far as I could take it. It's time for someone else to come in and see if they can take them the next step."

Pressley, who told his players in a meeting Tuesday, says he is not exploring other coaching opportunities at this time.

Before becoming Pisgah's head coach in 2001, Pressley had served as a Black Bears assistant coach, including the defensive coordinator, from 1990-2000.
