JEFFERSON COUNTY, Fl. (WTXL) — Ira Reynolds retired from coaching high school football four years ago. On Tuesday evening, he decided to put on a head coaching hat again.

Reynolds was the head coach for FAMU DRs football for several years. He retired four years ago, but continued to teach at the school. Reynolds is now the head coach for Jefferson County.

He said Jefferson County was always a powerhouse in football. "Jefferson County has been a powerhouse for years. Again, I grew up just outside the county, in a community called Miccosukee," explained Reynolds. "So, I remember all of the championship years. It's a rich tradition here. I know half of the people who went here through the years. When the opportunity came for the job, I said, "I need to jump on that." Great place to work."
