Coral Springs High School Athletic Director Brandon Wesley officially named Ian Headley as the new head coach of the varsity football team.
Headley replaces former NFL star Leonard Weaver, who resigned earlier this Spring and is now coaching at Park Vista High School.
“It means the world to me that they gave me the opportunity to be the coach,” Headley said. “I am excited to work with Coach Wesley and Principal Suarez as well as the rest of the administration. With the resources we can tap into, it really means a lot.”
Headley is a former football player at Jacksonville University and a graduate of Bethune-Cookman University before getting into coaching. He coached at Warner Christian Academy in Daytona from 2012-14 before coaching at Mater Academy Charter High School in Miami from 2014-16.
He also worked at Spanish River Community High School from 2016-17 and Boca Raton Community High School in 2018 as the quarterback’s coach. He helped develop three-star quarterback Michael Pratt, who was the AAC Freshman of the Year at Tulane.
Headley also works as a sixth-grade world history teacher at Carver Middle School and also is the owner of Epic Sports Performance, where he trains with young athletes and is the owner. Headley is also the owner of a popular 7×7 football team in Palm Beach called Epic Elite.
“Coach Headley is very respected on the high school and collegiate level,” Wesley said. “Just the energy and dedication showed in so little of time we knew we chose the right candidate for Colt country.”
Coral Springs is coming off a season in 2020 where they went 3-3. They made the postseason for the first time in six years and earned their first win. While they have a handful of extremely talented kids graduating this spring, they will still return some key players.
