After twenty-seven years as the head football coach at Massac County, Kelly Glass has stepped down from that position to become the associate head coach at the new McCracken County High School.

Glass racked up 132 wins as the coach at Massac County, leading the Patriots to the playoffs thirteen times. Back in 2007, he earned a spot in the Illinois high school football coaches hall of fame.

McCracken County head coach Jack Haskins says Glass will work directly below him, and will help out on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball.

So with the hiring, McCracken County's football staff is now complete. Along with Haskins and Glass, the Mustangs have Allen Harmon on board as offensive coordinator.  He held that same position at Lone Oak under Haskins. And former Heath head coach John Adams the third will be the team's defensive coordinator. Haskins says Glass will officially join the team this summer,  and in the end, the hiring was a no-brainer.

"He's such a quality person number one," said Haskins. "I mean, he brings a lot of class to our program, that's one of the big things. The other thing, he's got great experience. You don't coach for forty years and not learn a whole lot, so he's definitely going to be an asset to our program in every facet. So I'm just tickled to death to have a guy of his stature."

McCracken County's schedule is also set for next season, with notable matchups against Graves County, Mayfield, and Paducah Tilghman.
