MONTICELLO, Fla. (WTXL) - The high school football moving van continues to roll, and unfortunately for the Jefferson County Tigers, it's a sight that's become all too common in Monticello. For the ninth time in the last 14 years, the Tigers will look for a new head coach, as Blair Armstrong has resigned.

The Jefferson County alum, who was in his second stint in coaching the Tigers, resigned last week, told WTXL on Friday that the school was "just not a good fit for him anymore."

He went on to say that "everything has changed from the last time he was head coach of the program," where he won a State Championship with the Tigers in 1982. What's next for the now former coach? He said he's not sure, it's "something he'll have to pray about."

Jefferson County went 1-7 this year under Armstrong, and as far as a timeline in hiring a new head coach? According to Armstrong, due to several changes in staffing at Jefferson County Middle-High School, it could be one to two weeks before they start looking.
