The Highland Athletic Department released this statement Wednesday:

"Highland Community College Head Football Coach Aaron Arnold has submitted his resignation and his intention to retire from coaching at the conclusion of his contract with HCC. As the Head Football Coach, Aaron Arnold has helped to guide Highland football to new heights and will finish his career at Highland as the third-winningest football coach in school history. Coach Arnold has led the program to multiple Top 20 rankings and has helped numerous student-athletes achieve success beyond Highland. According to Athletic Director, Bryan Dorrel Ph.D., ATC Highland Community College will conduct a nationwide search for a new Head Football Coach to guide the Scottie football program. The search will commence immediately following the end of the 2019 season."

Arnold has been the head coach at Highland for the last six seasons.

A cloudy start to your Thursday across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. Temperatures slowly warmed up into the upper 40 and lower 50's by the afternoon. We will be watching a storm system for the weekend which could bring us a mix of rain and snow.
