Tyler Stallons announced Friday he will be stepping down from his position as head coach of the Hopkinsville Tigers boys' soccer program.

Stallons has been at the helm of the Tigers since 2011 and amassed a record of 169-48-11 during his nine years.

In addition to 169 wins, Stallons helped lead the Tigers to eight 8th District titles, four 2nd Region titles and their first Final Four in program history in 2018.

Stallons was also named the KHSAA Boys' Soccer Coach of the Year in 2018.

Much like they did when Stallons won coach of the year, messages of support poured out on social media.

"The kids at Hoptown are losing a great man," Henderson County coach Benson Pryor said. "We might have been rivals, but I have nothing but respect for Tyler Stallons. Great coach. Great man."

Former Hoptown Tiger Ethan Noel also chimed in.

"The man established a dynasty," Noel said. "Couldn't have been more proud and honored to have him as my coach and mentor."
