COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) — Richland Northeast’s Bennett Weigle has resigned after two seasons as the head coach of the Cavs.

Weigle announced his departure Thursday night on twitter.

“I will not return as the head football coach at Richland Northeast in 2019,” said Weigle on social media Thursday. “This was a difficult decision and one that I have labored with for weeks, but I know it’s the right move for my family and me at this time.”
