Jaggers stepped down two years to the day after he was hired at the school where he once played.

He went 6-16 in his two seasons at Lincoln, including 4-7 this season.

Jaggers told WPBK-FM, “I appreciate all the people who supported the program during my time here. I want nothing but the best for the players, both present and past.”

Jaggers came to Lincoln in 2022 from LaRue County, inheriting a young team – only nine seniors were on the 2022 roster – that lost its first four games and won only twice. The Patriots won four of their first seven games last season before losing their final four games. 

A news release issued by the school said the search for Jaggers’ replacement will begin immediately.

“We are appreciative of the job Josh has done for us and wish him the best going forward,” Lincoln principal Michael Godbey said in the release.

Jaggers played for Lincoln in 1996, the last of the six seasons that his father Marty coached the Patriots.

He is 46-66 in 10 seasons as a head coach, including eight seasons at LaRue. He has also worked as an assistant coach at North Hardin and Mercer County.
