SHERMAN, TX -- Reactions are coming in after Sherman's head football coach resigns.

Some people we talked to say they can understand the decision for Gary Kinne to leave Sherman I.S.D. because he was stripped of his athletic director title following a violation of UIL rules involving appearing at an Arkansas 7-on-7 tournament, but others aren't so sure he should be parting ways with the district.

"I figured he was gonna resign after they took his athletic directorship away, I just to my mind thought his career was over here," says R.L. Calhoun.

"What he did, I guess was against the rules so something had to be done, but I sure hate to see him leave, but hopefully he'll find another job and do well," says Ronny Mitchell.

"I think it was kind of saving the school's neck to be honest with you, that's what the school does best. I'm not too fond of the school system these days," says Doris Franklin.

Kinne came to Sherman in 2009 and his overall record was 41 wins and 18 losses. The district replaced Kinne as athletic director in November and will now begin searching for a new football coach.
