The cat is now out of the bag and the worst-kept secret in the Golden Triangle has officially been made known to the public with legendary West Point head football coach Chris Chambless officially announcing his retirement.

Chambless last Tuesday informed SuperTalk Mississippi News that he would be stepping down from the role of head coach, but made the announcement official to his team on Monday.

Chambless served 24 seasons at West Point — 17 of them as head coach. During his tenure, the Green Wave won seven state championships, with their most recent one coming this year. His overall record as the head honcho for the program is an impressive 206-45.

“I’m gonna go to Walmart. I’ve never owned a bathrobe before. I’m gonna buy me a bathrobe and I may not take it off for a while,” Chambless told SuperTalk Mississippi News of his early retirement plans.

As for his long-term plans, Chambless did not confirm what the next chapter of his life would entail. Nonetheless, the West Point mainstay will always be known as one of the best football minds in Mississippi.
