Higgins coached the Tigers for four seasons, going 28-20. He was 69-26 in eight seasons as Trigg County coach from 1999-2006. His overall record, which also includes a stop at Oldham County, is 114-70.
Higgins told me via a text message Monday night he plans to seek an administration level job in the Louisville area.
"I'll be certified completely by the end of the spring, and I'll be looking for a job as an assistant principal or maybe as an athletic director," Higgins told Jason Frakes of the Louisville Courier-Journal. "This is something I knew was a possibility. I just didn't know when I was going to make the move."
Higgins brought an exciting offensive style to Trigg County when he arrived from Louisville in 1999, and several of his teams and players still sit atop the TCHS football record book. Higgins also served as softball coach and assistant athletic director at Trigg before leaving for Fern Creek after the 2007 school year.
