James Waring has stepped down as the Head Football Coach at St. John's after 4 seasons leading the Islanders and over 20 years as a Head Coach at schools around the Lowcountry the coach confirmed to Live 5 on Monday.
"It was just that time" Waring said. "The program is heading in the right direction so I think it's time to let someone younger step in."
Waring led St. John's to the 1-A Division 1 playoffs this past season, falling to Johnsonville in the first round. In his 4 years with the team he led them to a 21-22 record.
He began his coaching career at Lincoln back in 1991 and included stops at Stall and Cross before finishing at St. John's. His overall Head Coaching record according to scfootballhistory.com is 93-145.
But Waring isn't ruling out taking another coaching job sometime in the future simply saying "never say never".
