Ardrey Kell High football coach Joe Evans has resigned, he confirmed to the Observer via text message Wednesday afternoon.
Evans coached the Knights for two seasons. Ardrey Kell was 7-6 in 2015 and 6-6 in 2016. They made the playoffs each year.
Evans was the third head coach since the school opened in 2006. He was also head coach at Independence in 2013 and 2014. His Patriots teams were 20-6 with two playoff appearances.
Ardrey Kell athletics director Brian Knaub said the football team was notified of the coaching change early Wednesday afternoon after Evans resigned Wednesday morning.
“We’re posting the position (Wednesday),” Knaub said, “and we’re going to start the process as quickly as possible (to hire a new coach) and to identify the best candidates out there.”
