Replying with a one word, “Yes,” Bradwell Institute’s three-year football coach Greg Hill confirmed he has resigned from his coaching job.
Hill has not said why he resigned.
For now, he is not giving up his job as a special education teacher at the school, according to BI Principal Scott Carrier, who said the coaching resignation is effective immediately. He said Hill had brought the possibility of a resignation to his attention a few weeks ago.
“He and I had talked about it over the last couple of weeks,” Carrier said. “We talked about it…he gave me the letter and then I presented the letter to the superintendent, who gives it to the board of education.”
Carrier did not elaborate on why Hill resigned, saying it would be best to speak with Hill.
Carrier said the search for a new head coach is already in progress.
“We are in the process now of getting ready to advertise the position,” Carrier said. “I hope that advertisement will be going out in the next few days. We will advertise for a few weeks and I hope to start reviewing applications as soon as we get back from the Christmas holidays and start interviewing candidates shortly after that.”
Hill took over as head coach in 2014 after then coach Adam Carter resigned after being the head coach for one year. Carter was hired to replace former longtime head coach Jim Walsh Jr.
Hill worked on rebuilding a struggling Tiger football team. The last two years the Tigers went 0-10 but finally broke the losing streak this year with a 3-6-1 record.
