CENTRAL DAVIDSON COACH STEPS ASIDE DUE HEALTH
LEXINGTON-- Mark Hoover has relinquished his post as Central Davidson High School head football coach effective immediately due to heart-related health concerns. He will remain at the school as a physical education teacher, according to the Lexington Dispatch.
Assistant coach Brad Morton has taken over as head coach.
Hoover took over the Spartans in 2009 after head coaching jobs at Chatham Central and West Lincoln and a defensive coordinator position at West Forsyth. The Spartans were 4-7 in 2009 and 7-5 in 2010. He had coached 29 years in Covington, Va., including 10 years as a head coach.
Under Hoover, the Spartans have developed into a prolific running team with a disciplined commitment to offseason strength and conditioning programs.
Hoover said his doctors had suggested he step down before the season began, but he wanted to see the campaign through. When his health situation became worse, he, Poindexter and Central Davidson principal Tabitha Broadway agreed that the time had come to step aside.
