For the first time in nearly two decades, the Trigg County boys’ soccer program will have a new head coach.

Josh Nichols, who has led the Wildcat program to 11 Fifth District Championships and a pair of regional championship appearances officially stepped down on Wednesday after 359 games at the helm of the program.

“Trigg County High School boys’ soccer head coach Josh Nichols has submitted his resignation after 19 years as the leader of our program,” Trigg County Director of Athletics Matt Wilder said in an official release from the school.

During his career, coach Nichols led his teams to a record of 192-134-33.

He is currently sixth in wins for active coaches and 25th for overall career wins. Trigg County won 11 Fifth District Championships, including the last four in a row.

Two times the Wildcats finished as Region Two runner-ups (2010 and 2012) and had two undefeated regular seasons (2010 and 2012).

“We thank coach Nichols for his nearly two decades of dedication to the young men in our soccer program.”

Nichols hangs it up after the Wildcats finished 3-13-1 on the year that included a trip to the Second Region Tournament.
