Wesley Chapel hires River Ridge assistant as head football coach



Wesley Chapel hired River Ridge offensive line coach Anthony Egan to take over the football program.

Egan replaces Tico Hernandez, who stepped down after three seasons.

Egan, a River Ridge graduate, helped mold an offensive line at his alma mater that paved the way for Chris Schwarz to rush for more than 2,000 yards each of the past two seasons and break the county career scoring record.

The Wildcats had to deal with several player defections last year and finished 2-8. But there is a solid nucleus with quarterback Jacob Thomas and receiver Ben Goins returning.
