LOUISVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - A Mississippi high school football coaching legend will soon be calling it a career.
M.C. Miller has decided to step down at Louisville High School after the 2018 season.
'Toothpick,' as miller is affectionately called, has been at Louisville since 2010.
Miller led the Wildcats to the 2013 3A state title.
Prior to Louisville, Miller was the head man at Noxubee County for 30 years and coached the Tigers to a 4A state title in 2008.
Miller has already named his successor at Louisville High School. Former Columbus High School head coach Randal Montgomery confirmed to WTVA that, pending school board approval, he is set to become the offensive coordinator and head-coach-in-waiting at Louisville.
In November, Montgomery was fired by Columbus after four seasons and a record of 20-26.
'It's not everyday you follow a legend at a program that's won eight state championships,' said Montgomery. 'I'm excited to get to work.'
