I just got word that Skyline High football coach Kevin Evans resigned. The school is seeking an immediate replacement.
Evans said he informed the school after its Week 9 loss to Oakland Tech. The Titans finished 1-9 this season and in fifth place at 1-4 in the Oakland Athletic League. It marked the first time since the OAL expanded its playoffs to four teams in 1989 that Skyline had not made the playoffs.
Evans has been the head coach for the past five years and on the coaching staff for the past 18. He also played football at the school the three years prior.
“I’ve been around the school for the last 21 years of my life,” Evans said. “Obviously it’s going to be hard to walk away. I think the kids need a change, somebody to bring new energy.”
