Shobe steps down as Wiregrass Ranch football coach

Citing a need for change, and also a break for himself, Wiregrass Ranch High football coach Jeremy Shobe resigned Monday, telling his players in person and handing a formal letter to athletic director Dave Wilson explaining his decision.
Shobe, 35, guided the Bulls to their greatest successes, including the school’s first district title and postseason appearance in 2010. But his four-year tenure as head coach and six-year stint overall at the school ended three days after perhaps the program’s lowest moment – a 23-17 loss to Zephyrhills that capped the Bulls’ second consecutive 0-10 season.
“Going 0-20 to me, based on my expectations … it just doesn’t meet my requirements,” said Shobe, who was 11-30 overall in his first head coaching job. “The last two seasons have been tough, hard on the morale of the players.
“This team is heading into a new district and has a lot of potential. Fifteen incoming seniors, a sophomore quarterback, this is a good situation. But it’s time for a new leader, a fresh start.”
