Ken Sparks announces retirement as C-N head football coach
WVLT/Peg Broadcasting News Tuesday November 15, 2016

Local 8 News reports that Carson-Newman head football coach Ken Sparks announced his retirement Monday after 46 years of coaching.

Sparks, 72, had continued coaching even after announcing in 2012 that he had cancer.

According to Local 8 News, after a week where he spent as much time in the hospital as on the football field, Sparks said he made the decision last Thursday night to step down.


He is considered to be one of college football's all-time greatest coaches. He started at Gibbs High School in 1968 with his philosophy of, "It's never about wins on the field, but the victories of the soul."

The head of the Eagles has coached at Carson-Newman since 1980 with 37 seasons under his belt.

Sparks finishes his Carson-Newman career with 338 wins, 99 losses and two ties.
