Daryl Dickey to step down after 2013 season?

Sources tell FootballScoop that West Georgia head coach/athletics director Daryl Dickey plans to step down as head coach at the conclusion of this season to focus his full attention towards serving as athletics director. The move is expected to be announced at a 2 p.m. ET press conference on Tuesday.

I have suspected this was coming for a while, although I thought it would come near the end of the 2013 season. If true this is probably a good time to get the news out to minimize the effect on recruiting. I believe the cards are set to allow Dickey to go out with a winning season. That will be good for him and the seniors.

I really hope former West Georgia Head Coach Charlie Fisher is on the short list of candidates to be interviewed. He was 36-19 in five years (’93-97) at the helm with one Gulf South Conference title. Whoever the next coach is he will certainly be inheriting a much better situation than Dickey walked into.
