Reggie Mitchell issued his resignation as head football coach at Americus-Sumter on Friday.

Mitchell led the Panthers to a 4-6 record in his only season at the helm.

The coach said it was not a forced resignation, but would not divulge many details as to why he resigned. Mitchell called it a "family decision".

"I'm thankful for the opportunity to serve the kids in this school system," Mitchell said.

Americus-Sumter competes in 4A-1 against Albany, Dougherty, Monroe, Westover, and others.
