LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - After 22 years as Idalou's head football coach and athletic director, Johnny Taylor has announced his retirement. The announcement comes just 17 days after the Wildcats captured the first football state championship in the school's history.

Taylor says he informed the administration this would be his last season before the season began. He cites wanting to be home with his family as the primary reason for stepping down, adding – "when you know [it's time to step down], you know."

No official word on who will replace the long-time head coach, but Taylor says he tabbed assistant, Don Long, to the school's principal and school board as his recommended replacement.

Pete Christy will have more comments from Taylor during the news at 6.
