SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

It's the end of a tremendous era at Southwood High School. Longtime girl's head basketball coach Steve McDowell has informed the school that he is stepping down as of Tuesday.

McDowell led the Southwood girls to a 5A state championship win last season it was his 10th state title since becoming head coach in 1991.

Southwood principal Jeff Roberts says McDowell wanted to spend more time with his family and the school will sorely miss him.

Roberts says boys assistant coach Jacoby Marshall will serve as interim coach for the season and the school will evaluate the position when the year is over.

The gym at Southwood is named after coach Steve McDowell.
