Angela Gillisse has resigned as Steinbrenner’s girls soccer coach. She said she stepped down last Thursday and has taken a position with a local nonprofit group.
Gillisse, a former University of Tampa and Durant High standout, led the fourth-year program to a 14-6 record and its fourth straight postseason berth in her first season at the helm. The Warriors finished as the Class 4A-District 8 runner-up to Wiregrass Ranch before being eliminated by state finalist Lakeland George Jenkins in the regional quarterfinals.
The resignation means Steinbrenner is looking for its fourth coach in as many seasons.
Teresa Patterson led the program for its first two years, resigning after the Warriors won the 4A state title in 2011. Robert Woodard coached the squad for the 2011-12 season before stepping down.
Steinbrenner athletic director Eddie Henderson said they are current advertising the coaching position, adding that there is no timetable to name a replacement.
