After back-to-back losing seasons, Chris Candor will no longer be leading the Goose Creek Gators on the football field.

In a message sent to Sports 4’s Scott Eisberg, Candor said, “I have decided to pursue other interests.”

Candor took the reins of the program following the departure of Chuck Reedy, who had previously coached at the University of South Carolina and Baylor.

The Gators were 14-19 for the three seasons Candor was in charge.

Candor said he was no longer affiliated with the program at Goose Creek as of Friday.

“On behalf of Goose Creek High School, I would like to thank Coach Chris Candor for his commitment and his contributions to the Gator football program these last three seasons," said Goose Creek High School Principal Shameka Washington. "We look forward to continuing to build our program and will begin the search for a new head football coach to lead our talented student-athletes immediately."

Candor is one of at least two head football coaches in the Berkeley County School District that as of Friday were no longer in charge. Earlier in the day, Sports 4 confirmed Stratford High head football coach Joe Marion would also be looking for a new coaching job.

At a press conference when hired in February of 2015, Candor described coaching at Goose Creek High School as his dream job. He was previously the defensive coordinator.
