After just one season that ended with a 2-8 record at his Alma mater, former Tennessee football player Scott Galyon has resigned at Seymour to spend more time with his family.
“It was a tough decision that I have wrestled with since the end of the season. I believe we are on the right track. Culture, work ethic, overall team strength and speed has improved over the last year. Up to 90 players involved with our program now. Just not a viable option due to time and supporting our family,” Galyon said.
The Eagles enter the 2019 season on a six game losing streak and will be looking to get back to the playoffs something they haven’t done since 2015.
“We hate to lose Scott, he was a great role model for our athletes and the entire community is disappointed as he resigned because of family considerations,” Seymour AD Gary Householder said.
Galyon is a 1992 Seymour graduate who played at Tennessee (1992-96) where he led the Volunteers in tackles his junior and senior year and was a sixth round draft pick of the New York Giants in 1996.
He played seven years in the NFL as he spent four years with the Giants (1996-99) and three seasons with the Dolphins (2000-02) before coming back to Tennessee to assist Householder coaching for Seymour in 2003 and 2004.
There are currently 12 programs looking for a head coach they are: Bolton, Cloudland, Coffee County, Covington, East Robertson, Hamilton, Kenwood, Manassas, McMinn Central, Morristown East, Seymour and White Station
