Per Mike Duprez at The Lexington Dispatch:

Key sentence in his article: "Thomasville was once one of the state's premier prep football programs." I cannot say this resignation is surprising.

I was not even surprised when Richard Herman left and he did so very much for those kids. Think you will continue to see a coach change every couple years if the coach is wanting to change the atmosphere. Discipline and committment is an issue. It takes its toll on ones soul.

Parents and community have to buy in and support whomever takes over.  They have to get over the past and realize Thomasville is not a 1A power house anymore (now a very small 2A).  They have to get bigger, stronger and faster because the schools around them have caught up in many aspects and are well coached with veteran staffs and tremendous community support.  Discipline starts at home and when parents allow their kids to skip practice, miss scheduled team events, walk onto campus late everyday or act as they please then what is a coach, teacher or administator to do with that.  Best wishes to the Bulldogs and the new coach/staff.

Sad to see a once great program fall completely apart. But, if the parents and community doesn't support discipline and work ethic, it will never improve.
