Chuck Robertson is leaving Taylorsville High School after two years as its head football coach. Robertson confirmed the news to Sports601 on Saturday. 

“I would like to thank Taylorsville High School and the community for the opportunity to be the head football coach the last two seasons,” said Robertson. “I am so proud of our kids and staff for what we were able to accomplish during that time.”

Taylorsville finished 15-1 in 2017 under Robertson and claimed the MHSAA Class 2A title with a 41-26 win over Winona. Taylorsville advanced to the title game with playoff wins over Bogue Chitto, Perry Central, North Forrest and Collins. They entered the playoffs as a No. 1 seed after a perfect 4-0 finish in Region 5-2A. 



“This past season was extremely exciting,” Robertson said, “especially being able to bring a sixth state title to Taylorsville. The future is very bright for the Tartars, and wish them the best of luck next season.”

While at Taylorsville, Robertson compiled together a 19-8 record. 

Robertson leaves Taylorsville to accept the position as Men’s Housing Director at Jones County Junior College.

“I’m very excited bout my new opportunity,” said Robertson. “It will be different not coaching, and I am sure I will miss it, but it will give me the freedom to spend more time with my daughters, which is the most important thing.”
