Georgiana School head football coach David Watts has resigned.

Watts said that he tendered his resignation on Thursday.

He had served as the Panthers’ head coach for two seasons. During that time his teams compiled a 3-17 mark.

The Panthers won two games in Watts first season at the helm of the program, but managed just one win in 2012 – a 41-0 thrashing of Red Level High School.

Watts, who also coached baseball at the school, was hired by the Butler County Board of Education in 2011 after a five-month search. He had previously served as an assistant coach and offensive coordinator at Georgiana.

Watts had also served as the Panthers’ interim head coach during 2011 spring workouts after head coach Shawn Gregory was dismissed six games into the 2010 season.
