DUNCAN, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Brian Lane announced Monday he is stepping down as the Rebels head football coach.

Lane, a Byrnes High School graduate, has been coaching at his alma mater for three years. The Rebels aren't in the playoffs this year after finishing a 3-7 season.

The coach will finish out the rest of the academic year.

Below is the statement released by Spartanburg County District 5 superintendent Scott Turner:

“I regret to announce that Brian Lane announced today he is stepping down as Head Varsity Football Coach at Byrnes High School.  This was entirely Coach Lane’s decision, as I expressed the District’s desire for him to remain as Head Coach of our program.

Brian and I, along with Principal Todd Hardy, have had many conversations in recent weeks regarding the overall state of the Byrnes football program, and our vision for future improvements.

In the end, Coach Lane decided it was best for him, and his family, to step down and pursue other opportunities.  We respect his decision.  District Five is grateful for Coach Lane’s contributions to Byrnes High School, and more importantly, his leadership of our student athletes over the last 3 seasons.

An extensive search for a new Head Football Coach at Byrnes High School will begin immediately.”
