Shiloh Christian football coach Josh Floyd has resigned to take the job at Hewitt-Trussville High School in the Birmingham, Ala. area, the school announced on Thursday.
During Coach Floyd’s 10-year career at Shiloh, he has compiled a 99-29-1 record, including four state championships (2006, 2008, 2009, 2010) and one runner-up finish. During a run from 2006-2010, Shiloh was the state’s winningest program.
Shiloh has made the state playoffs nine of the past 10 years while also sending 24 players on to play college football, including the 2010 USA Today National Offensive Player of the Year, Kiehl Frazier.
Hewitt-Trussville is a member of the newly formed 7A classification in Alabama made up of 32 teams. The Huskies will be in a region with Alabama powers such as Hoover, Spain Park, and Vestavia Hills. This Birmingham suburb school is opening up a new $16 million, 8,000 seat stadium this fall.
Shiloh Christian released this statement:
"We believe this opportunity allows Coach Floyd to continue to fulfill our mission as a school and church of “Reaching Northwest Arkansas, America, and the world for Jesus Christ” in a great way. Shiloh loves Coach Josh Floyd and his family. We wish them the best in their new pursuit, and we will pray for them as they go."
