LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - After four seasons as the Lexington Catholic football coach, Nigel Smith is resigning.

On Friday, the school announced via Twitter that Smith was stepping down.

“I am stepping back, and will no longer serve as the Head Football Coach of Lexington Catholic High School,” Smith said in his resignation later. “I have been gifted with an incredible opportunity to pursue and attend Law School in the coming years.”

In four seasons as the head coach, Smith went 29-15. His best season was this past year, leading the Knights to a 9-3 record before falling at Boyle Co. in the 4A playoffs.
