After working as Baylor School's head football coach for more seasons than anyone in the past six decades, Phil Massey was relieved of his duties Thursday.

The school made the announcement through a news release.

Massey guided the Red Raiders for 16 years, reaching the TSSAA playoffs in all but two of those seasons, including consecutive Division II-AAA state runner-up finishes in 2010-11.

"It's been an honor and a privilege to coach at Baylor these past 16 years. Coaching for me has never been a job, it's been a way of life," an emotional Massey told the Times Free Press.
