Adairsville football coach Jim Kremer, who guided the Tigers to 17 wins over the past two seasons, announced Monday that he is stepping down as head coach.

Kremer said he plans to continue coaching, but could not disclose any more details.

“I have a couple of opportunities ... but I can’t let on where (those) are right now,” he said during an interview with the RN-T on Monday afternoon. “It will come out soon enough.”

Kremer has been the head coach at Adairsville for the past four seasons, compiling a 27-16 mark in that span, including going 17-6 during the past two seasons while leading the Tigers to the playoffs both years.

He said he met with his team Monday to let them know he would not be returning next season.

“It’s not easy to look the kids in the face and tell them you are going in a different direction (with your career),” he said. “And when you’ve invested a lot of time in the kids, it makes it even harder.”

Kremer said there is a strong bond inside the Adairsville football community, and that his players have become “his extended family” in the past four years.

Kremer, who said he will remain at the school for the rest of the school year, took over at Adairsville in 2009 and posted 5-5 records in each of his first two seasons.

The team then went 10-2 in 2011 while advancing to the second round of the Class AA playoffs, and posted a 7-4 record this past season with another playoff trip after the Tigers moved up from Class AA to AAA.

“I feel like the program is in great shape,” he said, “and I think they will be able to continue that — and get even better — in the (years ahead).”
