'It's a loss for Thomasville'

Area coaches react to Marsh’s resignation

THOMASVILLE — Richie Marsh’s resignation from Thomasville has come as a surprise to the coaching community.

When told of Marsh’s decision on Friday, Thomas County Central Bill Shaver reacted with shock over the phone, in part, because of the caliber of coach and man the Bulldogs community is losing.

“There’s not a better man for the kids,” Shaver said. “He stands for the right things. On top of that, he’s a good football coach. I don’t know how Thomasville can get anybody any better.”

Central offensive line coach Bill Wilhelm echoed Shaver’s sentiments.

“I hate that because he’s been taking that program in the right direction from a discipline standpoint. He’s a great Christian influence to those boys,” Wilhelm said.

“We all over here respect coach Marsh and what he’s done at Thomasville High.”

Marsh was successful during his eight years with the Bulldogs program. He finished with a 53-40 record and led the Bulldogs to at least the second round of the state playoffs four times. Before Marsh’s arrival in 2005, Thomasville had won only one playoff game since 2000.

“I’ve always liked coach Marsh. Coach Marsh is a class act,” Cairo coach Tom Fallaw said. “He’s a guy that does things the right way. He’s a guy that was always fun to compete against.”
