Recently another head coach from Long County High School stepped down from his position.

According to LCHS principal David Edwards, on May 8 the Board of Education accepted the resignation of head baseball coach Wade Peterson.

Edwards said that the resignation takes effect at the end of the school year.

Edwards could not give any other information on the coach’s departure.

That same week, there were unconfirmed reports that Peterson would be accepting a coaching position at Bryan County High School. After being contacted by the Courier for confirmation on these reports, Peterson responded by email on May 16 stating that his situation in Bryan County had changed and he was unsure of his next move.

This was Peterson’s first year as the head coach of the Blue Tide baseball team. Under his leadership Long County team posted a 7-18 overall record and a 2-8 mark in the 2-AAA Region. Though the Blue Tide did not make the playoffs they did finish the year on a high note, winning three of their last five games.

Peterson’s departure is the fourth resignation by a head coach at LCHS this year. Earlier this year Eric McNair stepped down as the head of the football, Deshon Brock stepped down as the head boys basketball coach, and Brian Todd stepped down as the head girls basketball coach.
