Clearwater Central Catholic decided to part ways with boys basketball coach Rick Coia, school athletic director Keith Galley said.

"We just felt we wanted to move in another direction," Galley said.

Coia played for the Marauders in the 1970s when the program was a power at the private school level. He finished 8-17 this past season.

Galley said the position will be posted on the Florida High School Athletic Association website and the school would like to hire a coach within the next month.
