After 30 years of pacing the sidelines as a football coach, Southwest's top Patriot is retiring.
Coach Carror Wright also known as C. Wright is finishing his career with Southwest High School. When the Johnson County native took over the program in 2007, the Patriots were in a 20 year losing season drought. Wright changed all of that and ushered the 2008 and 2010 teams into the state playoffs. He says it just feels time to put down the clipboard.
"Some of my friends and my peers tease me. They call me 'C' as a nickname, and they say it stands for class. So that's one thing I always want to be remembered for is bringing a touch of class and do it the right way. Once a coach always a coach, it's just time to leave the game," says the FVSU grad.
C. Wright also spent time at Northeast (1997-2003) where he took the Raiders to 4 consecutive playoff appearances.
A replacement for Wright's position has yet to be announced.
