After three seasons at Bishop McLaughlin, Derrick Alexander will no longer be the head football coach. The school announced Monday that Alexander is stepping down as head coach, but he will stay on as a consultant to the football program.
Alexander, a former Florida State and NFL defensive lineman, was hired in 2011 and compiled a 12-19 record during his tenure. Alexander stepped down to spend more time with his family, according to Bishop McLaughlin athletic director Joe Jasinski.
In 2013, the Hurricanes were 2-8 in their first and only season Class 3A-District 4 and will return to the Sunshine State Athletic Conference his fall.
