Mike Goforth backs out of Tennessee High girl's coaching job


On Thursday, Tennessee High announced the hiring of Union Athletic Director Mike Goforth as their new girl's basketball coach.

However, Goforth tells News 5 he's had a change of heart since making the decision and will remain at Union High for the upcoming year.

Goforth says the decision was made with his family in mind, and especially his young son.

"Tennessee High is a great job and a great school," Goforth says. "They will do well but my heart and my future is in Wise County."
