BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – Palm Bay Pirates football head coach Dwayne Byrd announced over social media on Friday that he has resigned as the football coach of Palm Bay Magnet High School after two seasons.
“After spending a few weeks recovering from COVID-19, I had a lot of downtime and a chance to think about my life and what is most important to me. Through that, I came to the conclusion that I have spent a large portion of my life coaching, mentoring and helping to raise several young men in the community, and every minute that I am coaching, I am missing out on time to be with my family and see my three kids grow up,” said Byrd.
“We never know when our last days will be and we only get 1 chance to experience our kids’ childhood. My family has always been supportive of me and my coaching and I am excited to make more memories with them. I also need more time to devote to my ever expanding real estate business.”
The new opening at Palm Bay will be the second coaching search for the Pirates in three years following the retirement announcement of legendary head coach Dan Burke back after the 2018 season.
Byrd finished with a combined overall record of 3-14 in two seasons with the Pirates.
