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.

It was only fitting Louisville commit Lamar Jackson entered his signing ceremony with a Florida backpack.

The Boynton Beach quarterback spent the past few days going back and forth between the Gators and the Cardinals.

“Florida coaches were blowing my phone up,” Jackson said. “I had to really sit down and think about it and talk to my mom about it.”

But in the end, Jackson stuck with his commitment and signed with Louisville in a ceremony held at Boynton Beach High on Wednesday. Along with Louisville and Florida, Jackson also considered Miami and Mississippi State.

“It went down to the wire,” Jackson said. [More]

With the retirement of Rick Swain, Boynton Beach lost a football coach and athletic director that had 41 years of coaching experience.

But the Tigers gained some of that experience back with the hiring of longtime football coach Andy Siegal this week. Siegal confirmed reports Tuesday that he was named Swain’s replacement as Boynton Beach’s head coach and athletic director. [More]
