SHERMAN, Texas (KTEN) — Sherman High School head football coach Cory Cain told KTEN Sports Friday that he is resigning after two years.

"After prayers and counsel with loved ones, I have decided I need to take a step back and focus more time on my family," he said via text message.

So the Bearcats will have a new head coach for the 2023 season, and the Sherman Independent School District will immediately begin the search for Cain's replacement.

The team went 8-12 during Cain's tenure, with back-to-back 4-6 records.

Cain came to Sherman in May 2021 after 15 years at Allen High School, where he served as assistant head coach, defensive coordinator and athletic-academic advisor. During that time, he collected five state championship rings.
