With the start of spring football practice just around the corner, the Ardmore Tigers are looking for a new head coach.
According to a press release from Ponte Vedra High School in Florida, Mike Loyd is leaving Ardmore and will become the first head coach at a brand new high school located near Jacksonville.
According to our sources Loyd has not officially resigned his position at Ardmore High School due to the fact that school was not in session this past week for Spring Break. However, that resignation is expected to take place as early as Monday.
Loyd spent 8 seasons at Ardmore. His teams made the playoffs in each of those 8 years, including 3 trips to the state semi-finals, the last coming in 2005. Loyd was 67-27 overall during his stint with the TIgers.
The 51 year old former NFL Quarterback is expected to be on staff in Ponte Vedra early next month, in time to conduct the Sharks' spring practices.
