At Tuesday's Revere Board of Education meeting, members accepted the resignation of head football coach Phil Heyn.
Heyn has been the football coach for three years, said Superintendent Randy Boroff. Heyn is also a social studies teacher at Revere High School.
"He felt that after this last season it would be in the best interest of the program if there was new leadership," Boroff said.
Heyn previously served as Revere’s baseball coach and lead the Minutemen football the last three years to a 4-26 record. He was an assistant coach the previous nine seasons, according to the Akron Beacon Journal.
Heyn's position as coach was renewed yearly, as a supplemental contract, Boroff said.
"He has developed great relationships with the students he teaches and has coached," Boroff said. "We understand his reasons for stepping down, yet we support him 100 percent in his future pursuits."
In his resignation letter to Athletic Director Bill Schumacher, Heyn said, "Although I am extremely disappointed that I was not able to reproduce the same successful results I had leading the baseball program, I know: that things were done the right way, that our players became better men, and I tried extremely hard for this program to achieve success within the parameters ... but in the end, I didn't get the job done and that burden rests on my shoulders!"
Heyn also said he is making this decision to spend more time concentrating on his family, teaching and coaching.
Heyn did not return calls for comment.
