McCray leaving APSU

Governors head football coach Carroll McCray, who was to begin his fifth season this fall, resigned in February to become the offensive line coach at Furman University in Greenville, S.C.

The move also allows McCray to be closer to his family. Both McCrays and his wife Angels parents live in North Carolina.

McCrays son, Trey, is going to play football at Furman, and that also factored into his resignation.

McCray's son, Trey, is going to play football at Furman, and that also factored into his resignation.

McCray, who last fall completed the first year of a three-year contract extension, was 11-33 overall and went 3-8 last season in Austin Peay's return to scholarship football.

Assistant head coach and offensive line coach Steve Haywood has been named interim head coach until a new successor to McCray is named.
