Lance Jenkins leaves Jensen Beach 

By Jason Lieser

After one season at Jensen Beach, coach Lance Jenkins resigned to take over the football program at New Smyrna Beach.

Jenkins was the offensive coordinator at New Smyrna Beach in 1999 and 2000.

“It’s a great opportunity that I couldn’t turn down,” he said.

Jenkins issued his resignation yesterday, but said he will stay in his office another week. He did not know if the school had named an interim coach.

Athletic director R.J. Costello did not return a phone message Thursday.

The Falcons went 5-5 under Jenkins last season.

Jensen Beach’s next head coach will be its fifth in the past seven seasons.

Floyd Graham resigned last year after one season on the job.
