TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Leon Principal Michael Bryan and Athletic Director Mark Feely announced the resignation of Garrett Jahn Monday as Leon High School’s head football coach.

I appreciate the support from the administration, boosters, staff and players I have received over the years. Leon football represents pride, tradition and excellence," Coach Jahn wrote in his resignation email. "Regardless of the wins and losses, I believe those core values have been instilled in our young men during my time at Leon. As a former player and now former coach, Leon football has always been a big part of my life and I wish the program success in the future.”

Jahn just wrapped up his fifth season at his Alma mater. The Lions went 1-8 this season and Coach Jahn's overall record as full-time head coach with Leon was 8-37.
