LANCASTER - Garrard County softball coach Ernie Browning turned in a letter of resignation from that position Tuesday.
"The reason was mental and physical stress that was affecting my health," Browning said Tuesday. "That's what I put down on the resignation letter today at 3 p.m."
Garrard athletic director Jim Freeman said he received Browning's letter of resignation.
Assistant coach Jeff Meadors has taken over the team, according to Freeman, though Freeman said he had not had a chance to speak much with Meadors. Freeman was out of town Tuesday night taking a final exam for his principalship.
"I talked to him a few minutes before I left," Freeman said. "Jeff is going to take over for Ernie in those duties."
