Einspahr out as Central football coach

Central is looking for a new football coach.

Athletic director Al Sorrentino said Thursday morning that he and coach Mike Einspahr talked last week and agreed the program needs to go in a different direction. The Bears have not won since September 2012 (28-17 over Wildwood).

In four seasons at Central, Einspahr compiled a 4-36 record.

The school posted the position on the Florida High School Athletic Association website Wednesday.

The Bears moved into a brutal Class 5A-6 district this season, with annual powers South Sumter and Pasco, and were outscored 379-102. Central last made the postseason in 2006.

Einspahr, who came to Brooksville from Kansas, is also an ESE teacher at Central, and Sorrentino said that position isn't affected by his decision to stop coaching.

Central is looking for someone with previous head coaching experience, Sorrentino said, who is also a strong disciplinarian. He said he hopes to find someone with energy who can persuade more students to try out for football.

"Someone who can get this program moving forward," he said.
