A legendary fixture in Georgia football for more than 20 years, Flowe told the Parkview faithful that he is stepping down at the end of the season.
He said it was his time and that he had made the decision long before the season had even started.
He will leave quite a legacy, which includes four state championships, a 46-game winning streak, three consecutive 15-0 seasons (2000-02) and a 12-year stretch of reaching at least the state quarterfinal.
Flowe came to Parkview in 1991 as an assistant under the late Chuck Mize, and took over the program in '93 after Mize's death.
In his 21 years as the top Panther, Flowe's teams have had only four losing seasons, including this one (Parkview is 2-6 with two games remaining). Two of those losing seasons were also playoff years.
Through Friday, Flowe has a 196-45 record as a head coach.
