Central Hardin coach Mark Perry has resigned as football coach after three seasons. He informed Central Hardin athletic director Chris Bauer of his decision Tuesday night.

Perry guided the Bruins to the program’s best season, going 11-2 this year. The Bruins reached the Class 6-A quarterfinals before falling to Meade County. It was the team’s deepest playoff run since 1997 and they won a road playoff game for the first time since the same season.

Perry was 22-14 in his three seasons. Prior to Central Hardin, he compiled a 36-40 record at Washington County and also served on the staff of Guy Morriss at Kentucky and Baylor.

Bauer said the school has begun the process of posting the job. He hopes to have a replacement in place prior to spring practice in April.
