East Stroudsburg football coach Denny Douds cemented himself into legendary status this past weekend.

The DII coach in Pennsylvania called a timeout at the end of his game this past weekend, walked onto the field, told his players he was retiring and then apparently just walked off to his car. RedditCFB shared a video of the incident early Tuesday morning. (RELATED: The Latest AP College Football Poll Is Here. Find Out Where Your Team Ranks)

He’s also apparently not a slouch at all. He was the winningest coach in college football at the time he decided to call it quits.

That’s how just about everybody dreams of leaving a job after decades there. He stopped the game, didn’t waste time and went out like a damn boss. It’s one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a very long time.

It might not be a big school, he might not have any name recognition as a coach but he made himself a king of the sport by pulling this move. Absolutely legendary move by this guy.

Well done, Douds. Well done.
