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.

Josh Ward spent the past month on the phone.

After the University of Buffalo made a late decision to withdraw its scholarship offer to him just before National Signing Day (Feb. 4), Ward was left without a school to commit to. So, the Post’s 2014 Small Schools Defensive Player of the Year made it a daily habit to call college coaches to check if any still had room left in their recruiting class.

“I can’t even count how many schools we called,” Ward said. “We called every one that we could. All of the Division I-AA schools I called were full, so I thought the chances of going to a Division I school were slim.” [More]
