Andy Siegal’s tenure as head football coach at Boynton Beach High did not last long.

After accepting the job to replace longtime Tigers coach Rick Swain in December, Siegal has stepped down due to “personal things and family issues,” according to Boynton Beach athletic director Evan Caruso.

“I resigned due to family issues that I don’t want to get into,” Siegal said. “Nobody told me to resign and nobody forced me to resign.”

Boynton Beach did not wait long to replace Siegal, as they named Errick Lowe as the new head football coach Tuesday. Before accepting a job on Siegal’s staff as the Tigers wide receivers coach in January, Lowe spent nine seasons as Lake Worth’s head coach from 2004-12 and the past two seasons as the wide receivers coach at Park Vista.

The House Education Committee is scheduled to hear a proposed committee bill on high school athletics on Thursday. The bill, which spans 61 pages, would give the Commissioner of Education, with the approval of the State Board of Education, the power to designate a nonprofit association to govern interscholastic athletic competition in Florida in place of the Florida High School Athletic Association by July 1, 2017.

“I think it would cause a lot of chaos,” John I. Leonard athletic director Scott Siegel said. “It would make the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.” [More]
