Blessed Trinity’s Ricky Turner, the only football coach in school history, has resigned and will serve as athletics director only.
Turner started the Blessed Trinity program in 2001 and had a 50-46 record. His teams made the playoffs four times. Blessed Trinity was 6-4 this season and scored a victory over Class AAA quarterfinalist Grady.
“Putting in 80-something hours a week for 11 years, it’s like I’ve been doing two full-time jobs,” Turner said. “I’ve got a son who was a senior this year and got three little kids, and I’m missing out on a lot of what they’re doing. It’s going to be good for my family.”
Turner said the school will be taking applications through mid-January with hopes of naming a head coach before spring practice.
