An innocuous tweet announced the retirement of one of North Carolina's most accomplished high school football coaches.
The Charlotte Catholic Twitter account (@CCHSCougarNews) tweeted that Jim Oddo would retire this year. Athletic Director Kevin Christmas said Oddo had announced he would retire, but declined to comment further.
Big day at CC. Announcements include: Coach Oddo, Mrs Zito, Mrs Cushman, & Mrs Chapman to retire. Stadium upgrades & parking deck in 14/15
