The Daytona Beach News-Journal is reporting today that Port Orange offensive coordinator D.J. Mayo is Chamberlain High’s new head football coach.

Mayo replaces Joe Severino, who retired last season after three seasons on the job.

Considering Chamberlain went to the playoffs every year from 2001 until 2008 and reached the state title game in 2001, the Chamberlain job is considered one of the best of the six remaining head football coaching positions in the county.

Mayo, 30, will be taking his first head coach job.  He was Atlantic’s offensive coordinator the last two seasons and spent a total of three years there as an assistant. Atlantic’s offense averaged 326.3 yards per game last season as the Sharks reached the first round of the Class 5A state playoffs, where they lost to Jesuit 42-14.

Mayo reportedly beat out 30 other applicants for the job.

Stay tuned to TBO for updates.
