The Elmbrook School District lost its second head football coach in 10 days when Sal Logue resigned from his job at Brookfield East on Monday.
Logue's resignation was a surprise and came after two seasons at the helm of the team. The Spartans combined for a 1-13 conference record and a 4-14 overall mark during that time.
He was 0-7 in Greater Metro Conference play and 1-8 overall in his first season, and 1-6 and 3-6 overall last year.
"I would like to thank the entire Brookfield East community and specifically the players, parents, (Brookfield East Principal) Mr. (Brett) Bowers and (Brookfield East athletic director) Mr. (Corey) Golla for the opportunity to serve as the head football coach for the past two years," Logue said in a statement. "I am very thankful to have been provided this opportunity."
Logue, who spends only one hour a day teaching health and physical education at Brookfield East, has the rest of his daily schedule at Central.
"When you spend only one hour a day at the school that you coach at, it makes it difficult to have the type of relationship that you need with your student-athletes," said Logue. "It's difficult being outside the building. This is the best decision for everyone involved."
Logue's resignation leaves both high schools without a head football coach. Doug Lange, 61, the coach at Brookfield Central for the last five years, retired from coaching March 19.
