South Pointe offensive coordinator, Jason McManus, has turned down an opportunity to be head coach at Union County High School. McManus, who has led the Stallions offense for the last 4 seasons, was offered the Union County job yesterday and was expected to be approved by the Union County school board tonight. However, after sleeping on the opportunity and talking with South Pointe officials, McManus felt torn and chose to stay with the Stallions.
Since McManus arrival in 2014, South Pointe’s offense has put up record breaking numbers and McManus has helped the Stallions to the last 4 consecutive state championships. His decision to stay should help South Pointe ease the blow of losing Gatorade Player of the Year and Clemson freshman, Derion Kendrick, to graduation.
