In his letter, he thanked the community and players for their support and promised to be available to them in the future.

"Words cannot express my gratitude and thanks to all of you, as well as those who went before you, for helping me accomplish some great things in three short years," he said. "Working together — anything is possible." The Herriman football Facebook page where the letter and announcement were posted Thursday included dozens of comments from players and parents thanking Wilson for his efforts on their behalf.

"Sad day," wrote David Christensen. The man taught me more in one year being in his program than any other (of) my high school years."

One mother, Shellie Terry Perry, wrote, "Thank you again for all you brought to our community, boys and school athletics! My son is a better young man because of you and will continue to honor you in all he does."
