After six seasons as the head football coach at Murray High, Steve Duncan confirmed Tuesday night he has resigned.
 
In a phone interview, Duncan said there are no negative thoughts surrounding his decision to step down.  He said the administration, his players and the fans have been wonderful to work with for the last six years. Duncan said after talking with his family over the Christmas break, he is now trying to find an opportunity to coach with his son -- an opportunity that couldn't happen in Murray. He said he has coached all three of his sons, and he'd now love the chance to coach with one of them. Duncan said while he is trying to find a new coaching job, he didn't want to leave Murray dangling with a potential lame-duck head coach. He said he wanted to give the school every opportunity to find a coach that could keep the program running at a high-level.
 
Duncan said if he is unable to find a job where he can work with his son, after 34 years of teaching and coaching he'll be happy to retire.
 
Duncan was 63-16 in his six years at Murray, including five-straight trips to the region finals. Murray's 2013 season was highlighted by a 27-14 win over #1 Caldwell County that sent the Tigers to the KHSAA 2A state semifinals.
