West Charlotte High football coach Mo Collins, a former NFL lineman who had guided the school to its most wins since 2010, died early Sunday morning.
Collins, 38, who did not coach in Friday’s 35-7 loss to Hough, had been receiving dialysis treatments for kidney failure. He is the second area football coach to die in recent weeks. Piedmont football coach Ron Massey died two weeks ago of a heart attack.
West Charlotte High Principal John Wall notified school staff Sunday afternoon, said Denada Jackson, Community Engagement Coordinator for Project L.I.F.T. School officials plan to have additional guidance counselors at school Monday to talk with students and staff to provide support. Collins’ family has asked for privacy.
