    R. L Boyles, head coach of the Hellgate Knights Football team resigned his coaching position this week after five years in the position. Boyles, a physics teacher at Hellgate took the position in 2008 and has committed himself yearly to the football program and Hellgate’s students. Even with his hard work and dedication, the team experienced a losing season in 2013, with a 0 – 10 record.


    Mr. Boyles indicated in his resignation letter that he did not reach his personal expectations for coaching and wanted to step aside and let another coach have an opportunity to lead the team to success. “The Hellgate community thanks Mr. Boyles for his hard work, dedication to the football program at Hellgate High School, and the connections he has made with his student athletes,” commented Lisa Hendrix, Principal of Hellgate High School.


    The position will be posted the week of November, 25, 2013. The new head coach will be responsible for determining the coaching staff for the 2014 season.
