Manchester Head Football Coach Eddie Fields Resigns

In a text message sent to Times-Union Sports Editor Connor McCann on Monday night, Manchester head football coach Eddie Fields announced he was resigning from his position as a result of his teaching position being cut by Manchester. Fields went 5-7 in his lone season with the Squires.
“Under my leadership and with the efforts of my family and many other great people, Manchester football accomplished beyond expectation. The 2023 Squires won five games, the most in a season since 2009. We also advanced to a sectional championship for the first time since 2007, and we achieved this with only three seniors. We leave a team that will return 18 starters and should immediately compete for county, conference and multiple level playoff championships,” Fields wrote in a statement.
“I cannot express how extremely grateful I am to have coached this group of young men. They mean the world to me! Unfortunately, because my teaching position is set to be cut per reduction in force, I am forced to resign from my position as head football coach. I beg that you will continue to invest in the development of young men in the football program. Please hold them to the elite standard of excellence and empower them to fulfill their greatness.”
The Times-Union would like to wish Coach Fields the best in his future endeavors.
