MARTIN, Tenn. -- Lynn Amedee resigned Tuesday after two years as head football coach at the University of Tennessee-Martin, saying he was stepping down for 'personal reasons.'
'I feel that although our program is stable, I am concerned about goals I've set for myself,' Amedee said.
'I feel at this time it would be best for me to resign.'
Amedee, who had an 8-14 record in two years at Martin, said he had no immediate plans, but is 'considering some other alternatives in coaching.'
Amedee was an assistant under Johnny Majors at Tennessee before taking the Martin job. He previously worked as an assistant at Tulane, Louisiana State, Northeast Louisiana and with the New Orleans Saints of the NFL and the Birmingham Americans of the old World Football League.
Tennessee-Martin Athletic Director Ray Mears said he would consider Amedee's recommendation that his defensive coordinator, Fred Pickard, be chosen to take over the head coaching job.
