WHITEVILLE, NC (WECT) -

Whiteville High School is looking for a new head football coach.

Former head coach Luke Little is leaving the school after he was approved as the new head football coach at Freedom High School in Morganton, NC.

“We prayed over it as a family, and we always wanted to get closer to Boone,” said Little, who played baseball at Appalachian State University in Boone.

Little took over the Whiteville football program in 2012 and led the Wildcats to a 53-25 record. Little's teams won conference championships in four of his six years.

A search for a new football coach at Whiteville High School will start immediately.
