Cheviron steps down as Goshen football coach

Goshen High School is in search of a new football coach yet again.

Mike Cheviron informed his players on Monday that he was stepping down as the Redskins head coach after an 0-10 season, Goshen Athletic Director Larry Kissinger tells NewsCenter 16.

Goshen's year ended this past Friday with a loss at home to Elkhart Central. Cheviron was 6-25 in three seasons at Goshen.

“I told the team I resigned. I told them the community doesn’t want me. That’s why I’m resigning. It’s not like I’m resigning for family reasons,” Cheviron told our reporting partners at the Elkhart Truth. “They’re giving me an opportunity to resign, but I’m not going to spin it in a negative way.”

Whomever takes over at Goshen will become the school's 8th football coach in 13 years.

The Redskins' opening is the 2nd in the Northern Lakes Conference this offseason. Scott Hoover stepped down at NorthWood last week.
