Nate Byrum has stepped down as coach of the Hilliard Bradley High School boys soccer team.

The Jaguars reached Division I district semifinals in each of Byrum’s two seasons. Last fall, they finished 10-9 overall and tied Thomas Worthington for third (3-3) in the OCC-Cardinal Division behind champion Dublin Jerome (5-0-1).

Bradley was 16-18-4 overall and 6-5-1 in the OCC-Cardinal under Byrum.

“There were a multitude of reasons (for Byrum leaving),” athletics director Cort Hamilton said. “One of them is family because his daughter is becoming more involved in activities. He also lives in London, so he had that drive, and he’s also looking for a new job and considering going back to school for a master’s degree. … We are very appreciative of the time and energy he invested in the program and wish him the best of luck.”

Applicants should email a cover letter and resume with three references to cort_hamilton@hboe.org by Jan. 5.
