Steinbrenner football coach Floyd Graham and his wife, volleyball coach Jennifer Graham, resigned June 5 to focus on their family out of state.
The Warriors’ only football coach in the program’s three-year history said the two are moving back to Wetumpka, Alabama to care for Floyd’s mother and maternal grandfather, both of whom are battling cancer.
In three seasons at the helm, Floyd was 15-14-1, including a 7-3 mark last season. He said there was no other option than to be with his family in its time of need.
Jennifer served on the Steinbrenner volleyball team as an assistant in its first two seasons before being named the successor to former coach Staci Elias in 2011. Last year she led the team to its third straight district championship, to the Class 7A regional semifinals and to a program best 24-6 record.
Steinbrenner athletic director Eddie Henderson said a replacement for both positions, as well as the vacant girls soccer spot, should come “hopefully by the end of the month.”
