MORTON PULLS OUT OF NEMCC COACH SEARCH

After two days of mutual consideration, Itawamba Community College offensive coordinator Tommy Morton decided Saturday not to pursue the Northeast head football coaching job.

Morton visited the Northeast campus Friday to discuss the postion Gunter Brewer stepped down from on Jan. 12. Brewer took a position as an assistant at Marshall University.

“The bottom line is I did not want to relocate,” said Morton, who has been at ICC four years. “Northeast can make an attractive offer, and someone will be lucky to get the job. But my family and I want to stay here.”
