Tracy White resigned as Bleckley County High School football coach following a meeting with Superintendent Steve Smith and high school principal Trey Belflower. White was hired in 2012 following the retirement of Sam Barrs. After going 17-6 during the first two seasons including BCHS hosting the first state playoff game in school history as well as winning the first home playoff game in school history, the team went 8-17 the last three years.
Smith released a statement saying "After discussions among Coach White, Principal Belflower, and Superintendent Smith regarding BCHS football, Coach White resigned as head football coach today. He has informed his coaches and players of this decision. We truly appreciate Coach White's dedication to the players, the school, and our school system. We look forward to him continuing to serve our students in the future."
