“In the beginning of February, I was informed through my superiors that my current teaching position was being excessed and the job qualifications were being changed for the future,” Lynott said in a letter to his players and the community.
That news led Lynott to pursue another job within in the building.
“Last Friday, I took advantage of that opportunity, interviewed and now have accepted a new position that my superiors have told me is going to require new responsibilities and be more demanding of my time after school,” he said.
Thus, Lynott was forced to step down as football coach. Instead of being a student support teacher at Middletown, he will now work as a college and career readiness teacher. He met with the team Tuesday morning to tell them about his decision.
