Roberts steps down as Head Football Coach of Centerville

CENTERVILLE, Ohio (WRGT) -- A premier head coaching job in the Miami Valley is now open. Rodney Roberts is resigning as head football coach of the Centerville Elks.

The school tells us, he is stepping away from coaching because the day-to-day grind was becoming too difficult, and he wanted to spend more time with his family. This will be the first time since 1996, that he will not be a football coach.

FOX45’s James Rider spoke with Roberts, and he told Rider he is at peace with his decision, and informed the athletic department on Thursday and his team Friday morning.

The Elks finished this season going 5-5, but managed to win their last three games.
