After three unproductive seasons at Siegel, Michael Copley has resigned as the Stars head football coach.
The Stars were 8-22 in three seasons under Copley and defeated first year program Rockvale 45-27 in the regular season finale last Friday to finish 1-9 this season.
“ I really appreciate my time at Siegel and the parents support over the last three years,” Copley said. “I appreciate all the kids that stayed with us during that time and all the effort and hard work they put in but at the end of the day, I think its time that they hear another voice for the program.”
The next Stars coach will try to the program back to the playoffs a place they haven’t been since 2016.
Before coming to Siegel, Copley was the head coach at three previous Kentucky schools: Louisville Ballard (2015-16), Greenup County (2009-10, one playoff appearance in 2010) and Pikeville (2008, one playoff appearance) where he complied a 30-29 overall record and his overall coaching record is 38-51.
“Coach Copley did offer his resignation this morning and I accepted it. I appreciate everything that Coach Copley did for the Siegel High School football program. Coach Copley did a lot of good things during his three years as head coach. I wish Coach Copley and his family nothing but the very best,” Siegel principal Larry Creasy said.
Copley has Tennessee coaching experience as he served as the Defensive coordinator at Centennial for three seasons (2012-14) before going to Ballard.
He also served as the Defensive Coordinator at Rowan County (KY) in 2011 after leaving Greenup County.
Currently Red Boiling Springs, Siegel and Station Camp are looking for a head coach.
