He confirmed principal Denise McGee had let him go, but Rainbow would not comment further other than to say he plans on continuing to teach at the school at least until the end of the school year.
Athletic director Rudy Deveaux said he could not comment on the situation until later today, but did say, “There are some things in the works.”
Campbell is the third school in the county now searching for a new football coach. South Cobb’s Michael Youngblood resigned recently after only one season with the Eagles, and last Friday John East resigned his position at Walker to take a job out of state.
In his three seasons with the program, Rainbow led the Spartans to an 8-22 overall record. However, each year under his supervision, Campbell improved. After going 1-9 his first season, the Spartans went 3-7 in 2012 and 4-6 in 2013. The four wins is the best season the team has had since 2007.
Now, the question will be where does the program go from here?
Whoever is hired will become the sixth head coach in the last decade for a program that has had only five winning seasons in the last 25 years.
