Adams Central football coach Bill Carlin announced his retirement Tuesday as head coach of the football program after 24 years.
Shawn Mulligan, who has been an assistant coach with Carlin for 13 years, will take over the program. Carlin will remain a math teacher at the school and the coach of the high school boys track team.
Carlin coached the Patriots to 192 victories, while suffering just 57 defeats. Adams Central also qualified for the state playoffs 19 times, playing in 45 games during Carlin's tenure.
