PARKLAND, Fla. (AP) - The football coach at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High says he is resigning.

Willis May Jr. says he’s made the difficult decision to step down after six seasons. May led the Eagles to a 33-26 record, and they went 5-5 under extremely challenging circumstances last season - the first after assistant football coach Aaron Feis and 16 others were killed in a massacre at the school on Feb. 14, 2018.

The football team paid tribute to Feis throughout the 2018 campaign, even turning his last name into an acronym standing for “Fearless, Emotion, Intensity and Sacrifice.”

May says he plans on moving elsewhere in Florida and being closer to family. He intends to continue coaching, though his plans are uncertain.
