Ken Cofer has resigned as Cook High's head football coach.
Cofer tells WALB he informed administration and the team of his decision Thursday morning.
"It was better for both parties for me to step down," he says.
Cofer says he got emotional when telling the team of his decision.
"I get very attached," he says. "I hope they get someone in here who will win."
He also adds he loves the community of Adel and will continue to root for the Hornets.
"I'll be a Cook Hornet until the day I die," Cofer says.
Cofer went 32-15 since being named head coach in 2010.
He says he isn't sure what is next for him. He says he'll explore his other options.
