JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Darius Brown is no longer the head coach of the Callaway Chargers. 

A posting for a Head Football Coach/Teacher at Callaway High School was listed on on the Mississippi High School Activities Association website early Wednesday morning. 

When reached by MSNEWSNOW, Brown said he declined to renew his contract within the last month to pursue another opportunity in Mississippi. 

Brown would not say where he would be coaching in the future.

When asked if Brown was offered a contract extension or a new contract, Jackson Public Schools spokesperson Sherwin Johnson said that Brown resigned. 

The Chargers were 12-15 in the two seasons under Brown. Brown served as Callaway's defensive line before being promoted to head coach in March of 2016.  

Brown played defensive line at Mississippi State from 1998-2000.
