Messenger Sports Briefs for May 18
Briefly

McCurry Cav stint
already complete

Mac McCurry’s stint as Crockett County’s head football coach did not last long.
McCurry, hired last week to replace P.A. Pratt who has moved into an assistant superintendent administration role in the CC system, was reportedly fired surrounding allegations of a past DUI charge that was not brought to light during his interview process.
McCurry, who coached 12 seasons at Moore County and six more at Marshall County, had spent the past five years at Ripley (Miss.) where he was 48-15 and his teams made the playoffs every year.
His overall record 220-65 in 22 seasons.
Pratt, who built the CC program from the ground up in 14 seasons during which the Cavs went from a winless team to 123 victories, said he would conduct the remainder of spring practice while looking for a new coach.
