BLYTHEWOOD (Dec. 22, 2016) – After four seasons as a head coach and five as defensive coordinator, Dan Morgan has resigned as head football coach for the Blythewood High School Bengals.

Barry Mizzell, Athletic Director, said the school accepted Morgan’s resignation last week, on Dec. 6.

“We appreciate everything Dan has done for us,” Mizzell said. “He’s been here nine years – four as head coach. After nine years, I think he was ready for a new challenge.”

Morgan took over for the Bengals after Reggie Kennedy departed following the 2012 football season. He posted a 29-20 record while in charge of the program, leading the Bengals to the playoffs in each of his four years. The first two years, the Bengals exited the playoffs in the first round. The last two seasons ended in second round losses.

Mizzell said the search is on for Morgan’s replacement and the school hopes to have a new head coach by the end of January.

Morgan could not be reached for comment.

Morgan’s departure marks the second shake-up in the Bengals’ football program in recent weeks. Junior quarterback Jordyn Adams two weeks ago announced he would be transferring to a school in North Carolina to play out his senior season and to be closer to his father, Deke, an assistant coach at East Carolina.
