Central coach Lewis resigns after two seasons
Bridgeport Central football coach Derrick Lewis has stepped down after two seasons.
“I’ve been thinking about it, discussed it with my wife and family,” Lewis said. “Of course I’ve got a young family. My son (Christian), he’s a budding star at Notre Dame-West Haven. I want to watch him.
“I just want to be a dad full-time and do some other things.”
Some will be ministry-related, Lewis said, and possibly some player development.
The Hilltoppers went 0-20 in his two seasons. They lost three games by eight points or fewer this year, including an emotional 12-7 loss to Bassick, coached by his longtime friend Desmond Lymon, that came down to the last play on Nov. 2 at Kennedy Stadium.
“At Central, I was very, very fortunate to have a lot of program friends and some very loving, loving kids who wanted to be part of something,” Lewis said.
“Central is a great place to be as far as the community there.”
