Sanderson High School will have a new head football coach next fall.
Tony Lewis confirmed Monday that he has resigned as the head football coach at the school. He continues to serve as the school's athletic director.
"Our program is moving in the right direction," Lewis said. "Internally things are going well, and I don't want to be the one to hinder that, so it's time."
Lewis was hired as the football coach at Sanderson in April 2009, following the resignation of Jason Tindal. In May 2010, Lewis was named the athletic director after longtime athletic director Bob Catapano retired.
In his four seasons as the head football coach, Lewis' teams have compiled a 5-39 record. This past season the Spartans went 2-9, posting wins over Panther Creek and Enloe.
"The next coach needs to bring some newness, a new set of eyes, and he needs to bring some excitement, some energy," Lewis said. "The kids need to be excited to play for Sanderson."
Prior to being named the head coach, Lewis was an assistant at Sanderson under Tindal.
Lewis said that the job will post immediately and he would like to start receiving resumes as soon as possible.
"We want to get someone in here as quickly as possible, but obviously we have to consider teaching positions and all of that," Lewis said.
