Long-time Wylie head football coach and athletic director Hugh Sandifer is retiring at the end of the school year.
Sandifer told his players today about his decision to call it a career.
Sandifer became the head coach at Wylie in the 1986 school year and began to transform the Bulldogs into a state power.
In 34 years as the leader of the football program, Sandifer led Wylie to a 285-147-4 record with four appearances in the state championship game, and a state title in 2004.
Sandifer led the Bulldogs to the playoffs 27 times, and the Bulldogs had a run of 24 years in the playoffs.
The next coach of the Wylie Bulldogs football program is going to have to fill some huge shoes.
