East Central Community College President Phil A. Sutphin says head football coach Terry Underwood has resigned.
Underwood's resignation was approved during Tuesday's monthly meeting of the college's Board of Trustees.
Sutphin said Underwood will remain on staff as athletic director until his contract expires on June 30, 2008. A new athletic director will be named later.
Steve Cheatham, who served the past year as Underwood's defensive coordinator, has been named as Underwood's successor effective Jan. 3, 2008.
Underwood had a 38-46 record in 10 years as head football coach.
