Former Florida star Chris Leak’s tenure as coach at Edgewater (Orlando) is over shortly after it began.
On Tuesday morning, Austin Lyon at Bright House Sports Network and J.C. Carnahan at the Orlando Sentinel reported that Leak is no longer the head coach. Edgewater athletic director Janet Rasmussen told the Sentinel that Leak resigned Monday night.
Leak replaced Rich Bedesem who took the head coaching job at Wekiva High School in Apopka earlier this year. He came to the school with a storied background.
The Eagles, which have now had five head coaches since Bill Gierke stepped down in 2010, will be looking for their sixth full-time head coach in seven years going into 2017.
For now, defensive coordinator Mike Granato take over as interim head coach for the rest of the season.
Edgewater, which is 0-5 and has been outscored 261-33, hosts Lake Howell on Friday, pending any weather cancellations due to Hurricane Matthew.
