Cougars football coach steps down after successful run

Following one of the most successful two-year stretches in program history, Holy Cross High School head football coach Mike Fletcher has announced he is stepping down and will retire.

Cougars assistant coach Todd Crumbacker, who also previously played for Holy Cross, has been promoted to the position and will take the reins headed into the 2012 season. The team was given the news on Wednesday afternoon.

Fletcher, who served as head coach at Holy Cross for the past three years, compiled a 28-10 record during his trio of seasons and led his squads to three district championships and two regional championship runner-up finishes, which both ended in losses to perennial western Kentucky force Mayfield.

Holy Cross outscored its opponents 1,075 to 395 between 2010 and 2011 and made national news this past season when the Cougars scored 49 points in just over five minutes and on just two offensive plays.
