The Vandals long time football coach and the man that has led them to the most playoff appearances all time has resigned. At their meeting tonight, the Vandalia School Board accepted the resignation from John Stout, as he resigns as head football coach. Stout has twice been the Vandals football coach—this second time for 13 seasons. During that second stint, Coach Stout is 61-63 as head coach with 6 playoff appearances in the past 10 years. Overall, Coach Stout had guided the Vandals to 7 playoff appearances over his two stints as head coach—which is the most by any coach in school history. The Vandals just missed making it another playoff appearance this season, but lost to Greenville, 50 to 49, to finish their season at 4-5.
