JENSEN BEACH -- Jensen Beach High School Head Football Coach, John Fey, last week announced his resignation from coaching effective immediately. He has also stepped down as the dean of students.
"In an attempt to motivate our team to play with more mental and physical toughness, 1 used inappropriate language," said Mr. Fey in a press release.
"The message I was trying to convey was lost in my poor choice of words. My passion got the best of me. I know that by virtue of our leadership capacity, coaches are traditionally held to a high moral standard within the community and I accept responsibility for my behavior."
Mr. Fey will be retained by the school district to work in another capacity within Martin County.
Mr. Fey became head coach in 2010 after a stint as defensive coordinator. He coached the Falcons to their first playoff appearance in the 2012 season.
