Sources: Kennesaw State RBs coach, longtime Georgia high school coach Tim Glanton to retire

Tim Glanton is retiring from coaching, sources told FootballScoop on Friday.

Glanton is the running backs coach and special teams coordinator at Kennesaw State, a post he has held on Brian Bohannon's staff since KSU launched football in 2015. He has been with the program since its 2013 founding and helped the Owls build one of the most feared rushing attacks in college football.

Kennesaw State led FCS in rushing in 2019 (342.4 yards per game) with a school-record 52 rushing touchdowns and an FCS playoff win over Wofford. The Owls also led FCS in rushing in 2017 and ranked among the top four in rushing offense for five seasons running.

Prior to Kennesaw, Glanton enjoyed a long and successful year in the Georgia high school ranks.

He started the program at South Paulding and engineered a turnaround at East Paulding, leading the program to its first winning campaign in a decade in 2004 while collecting district coach of the year honors along the way.

A walk-on that earned a scholarship as a wide receiver at West Georgia from 1985-90, Glanton worked as an assistant at a number of Peach State high schools before landing his first head job.

FootballScoop would like to extend Glanton a congratulations on behalf of his players and fellow coaches and wish him a great life in retirement.
