Skipper said Wrightenberrys coaching contract will not be renewed, but Wrightenberry, who currently remains on staff as a teacher at South Aiken, will be offered a teaching position for the next school year.
Teaching jobs and coaching jobs are separate, Skipper said. If he wants to come back (as a teacher), he can.
Wrightenberry, who just completed his fourth season as head football coach at South Aiken, led the Thoroughbreds to a 4-7 record this year, the schools fourth consecutive losing season. South Aiken finished third in Region 5-AAA this year, but Skipper said the school will move up to Class AAAA next season.
With us moving back up a change was needed, he said. Basically, were looking at taking our program in another direction, and were going to bring in someone to do that.
