SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -
After five years, Spartanburg High School football coach Freddie Brown resigned Tuesday.
Brown led the Vikings to a 28-35 record during his tenure.
Prior to coaching at Spartanburg, Brown served as the head football coach at Woodruff High School and as the head track coach and assistance football coach at Wofford College.
Brown said he believes the program at Spartanburg High School has made progress.
"The students at Spartan High, especially those who played football for me, are the best, and I will miss them the most," Brown said. "Even though we have enjoyed success and progress, I believe that it is time for a new leader to move the program to the next level."
Brown said he plans to remain in coaching.
Officials said a search for Brown's replacement will begin immediately.
