MIDLAND - Midland College is searching for a new coach after Chris Craig tendered his resignation effective immediately.

The school sent NewsWest 9 a press release stating Craig resigned for personal reasons.

The press release did state that the hiring process for a new head coach will start immediately and that they wish Craig well in his future endeavors.

Craig could not be reached for comment but NewsWest 9 did speak with director of athletics, Forrest Allen, who confirmed Craig's resignation and said they hope to have the job listed by Monday.

Over the last day or so, Craig's twitter account has tweeted numerous times about end of the world prophecies and government conspiracies and even posted a 31 page handwritten blog concerning the same issues but Allen said he did not know if these tweets or postings led to Craig's resignation, re-iterating Craig's resignation mentioned only personal reasons.
