LYNN HAVEN, Fla. (WMBB) – Mosley school officials announced they were parting ways with head football coach Jeremy Brown on Monday morning.
School officials said they have made this decision to go in a different direction for the future of the program.
“Specifically, we want to thank Coach Brown for the positive impact he has had on our student-athletes over the past nine years, and we wish him much success in his future endeavors,” Athletic Director Doug Lee wrote in a press release.
Lee said to News 13 on Monday he felt like it was the right time to make the move.
“I think going into this season even Jeremy felt there were high expectations. For whatever reason, I just felt like we never really got over the hump,” Lee said.
In eight seasons with the team as head coach, Brown had an overall record of 41-39. This year the Dolphins were 4-4 on the season.
Brown said the last eight years at Mosley have been some of the best for him as a coach.
“The relationships I have built with the players will last a lifetime. I will forever be grateful for the opportunity to lead the Mosley football program, but every good thing must come to an end and for me that time is now,” Brown said.
“I have always told the kids on our team that it’s bigger than football and this situation is no different, I will take comfort in knowing that we have helped these young men become better football players but more importantly they have been taught lessons that will help them be better sons, better husbands and better fathers,” Brown said.
Brown said he wishes nothing but the best for the future of Mosley football.
Lee said they will soon begin the transition process by advertising the position.
“We’re gonna have a committee to help with this process. We definitely have a plan in place and we know what we are looking for,” Lee said. “The goal is to hopefully have someone on campus mid-January.”
