Savannah High is looking for a new football coach as Michael Moore has resigned from his position as head of the program, Blue Jacket athletic director Tim Jordan said Tuesday.

Moore took over as head coach in 2020 and faced a challenging situation as the team had gone 2-18 the previous two seasons. Starting in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, he saw his first season cut to seven games. The Blue Jackets were winless this season with a 0-10 record and Moore won 4-23 in his three-year tenure.

Moore said health issues played a role in his decision to step down.

“It was just about time,” said Moore, 50, who previously had experience as a head coach at New Hampstead after coaching various sports at Johnson from 1998 to 2015, including a stint as athletic director. “I’ve been in the school system for 26 years and have had some health issues that I’ve struggled with. I just thought I had to resign. I might stay in coaching, but I have to step down from the coaching role of head coach.”
