SHERMAN, TX-- Embattled head football coach Gary Kinne has resigned from the Sherman Independent School District.

A joint statement released by the school district early Saturday morning says school officials will soon begin looking for a new football coach.

In October, Kinne was suspended for one game just one day before the 115th Battle of the Ax after the University Interscholastic League said he violated rules on "non-school participation" by having players participate in a showcase outside of Texas over the summer.

Following that incident, superintendent Al Hambrick dismissed him as athletic director, but he retained his title as football coach.

Kinne was critically wounded in 2005 while coaching in Canton, southeast of Dallas, when he was shot by an athlete's father. Jeff Doyal Robertson, who believed his son was being treated unfairly, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He came to Sherman in 2009.
