After two frustrating years at Antioch, Mike Head has resigned as head football coach at the Metro Nashville Class 6A school.
Head won his head coach debut in 2017 as the Bears defeated Station Camp 20-16 but the season went south quick and Antioch have lost 19 consecutive games in Head’s tenure at the school.
“Coach Head submitted his resignation letter late last week,” Metro Nashville Public Schools Athletic Director Roosevelt Sanders said.
The next head coach will be the fifth since 2012 joining Michael Woodward (2012, 2016), Brad Peden (2013-14), Calvin Hall (2015) and Head (2017-18).
There are currently 19 programs looking for a head coach they are: Antioch, Bartlett, Bledsoe County, Boyd Buchanan, Brighton, Carter, Cumberland County, East Hickman, Fayetteville, Gallatin, Hillcrest, Hunters Lane, Lipscomb Academy, Melrose, Northwest, Smith County, Tellico Plains, Walker Valley and Westview
