Piper head football coach David Coleman announced on his Twitter account Thursday night that he is stepping down from his post, effective immediately.
Coleman has been the head coach at Piper for the past four seasons, leading the Bengals to a 26-18 record and three playoff berths in that span. Piper went 6-5 last season, ending the year with a regional quarterfinal loss to Plantation.
“The last four years have been great building the program,” Coleman wrote. “Sometimes things happen in life that are out of our control and we have to make move that are in our best interests. That’s what I’ve decided to do, I have to think about what’s best for me and my family.”
Coleman also wrote that, for the time being, he will continue teaching.
