Wesley Chapel’s Ben Alford stepping down as football coach

Wesley Chapel football coach Ben Alford confirmed to the Tampa Tribune via text Friday night that he is stepping down from his position and informed his decision to his players earlier in the day.
“I have taken a job out of state and will leave at (the) semester’s end,” Alford’s text said.
Alford’s team was 3-7 this season and 11-19 in his three years at the helm of the Wildcats.
Alford, a former Pasco High quarterback, is just the second coach in program history after taking over for long-time coach John Castelamare, who started the program in 1999.
Alford’s decision to resign marks the second Pasco County football coach, as well as both football coaches in the Wesley Chapel area, to resign this week.
Wiregrass Ranch coach Jeremy Shobe resigned Monday following back-to-back 0-10 seasons.
