BREVARD COUNTY • SATELLITE BEACH, FLORIDA – Satellite Scorpion head coach Ted Kimmey announced he has resigned and offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Knox Robinson has been named as his successor.
Kimmey coached the Scorps for the last five seasons, posting a 36-16 record and culminated with reaching the regional finals last season.
Kimmey released the following statement on Tuesday afternoon to announce his resignation:
It is with a heavy heart that I announce my resignation as the head football coach at the greatest school in the State of Florida. This has been a very difficult decision.
My faith and family are extremely important to me. The time has come for me to face new challenges that allow me to lead and inspire off the field with the most important people in my life – my family. It is – without question – what is best for the program, myself and most importantly – my family.
In 2014, I made a blind move to Satellite Beach in order to coach football and stabilize my family. Eight years later – I now feel like I grew up here, I am raising my kids here and I am proud to call it my home.
Satellite Beach can do that to you! This program, community and school welcomed my family and I with open arms and I have no doubt that it was one of the best choices of my life to move here.
Satellite High School football has been the source of so many lifetime memories for me. The culture, energy and people are unlike any other program. I am incredibly proud to have been part of Satellite Football’s journey and it has been the honor of my life to serve as the head coach here for the last 5 years.
I believe in leaving things better than you found them, and I have no doubts that we have done that here. We have built a championship culture that promotes winning both on the field and in life after high school.
I would like to thank all of the Scorpion Football players over the last five years. I had a blast coaching you – no one is tougher than a Scorp. I will treasure the memories forever, and I hope you learned a thing or two. I would also like to thank all of our assistant coaches – some of the finest men I have ever known – I love you guys and I will miss you all dearly.
To the administration – thank you for taking a chance on me and your unwavering support Thank you to the Touchdown Club & our football family -no one has it better than a Scarp when it comes to parent, community and alumni support. Thank you Satellite Beach for making Friday Nights in our stadium such a special place to play football.
Allison and myself are still deeply invested in this great school and grateful every day that we live in such a wonderful community with high values. I plan on continuing to raise my kids in this community for this very reason.
I am still very passionate about the future success of Satellite Football. I am here to support the next coach and the school for the foreseeable future in whatever capacity is needed off the field. I will Need red and silver forever.
