Pima Community College football coach Pat Nugent has turned in his resignation after leading the Aztecs for five seasons.
The football team finished the 2013 season with a 5-5 record; its best finish since Nugent took over as head coach. Previous to this season, Nugent’s best finish for a season was 4-7 in 2011. He had an overall record of 13-40.
“The time and commitment needed to run a junior college football program is tremendous and at this time in mine and my family life, I will not be able to provide the guidance that is needed for the student-athletes,” Nugent said in a letter. “I appreciate the opportunity that I have been given at Pima Community College and the continued support and guidance that I have received from the administration.
“I have worked extremely hard to build the football program to a respectable level and feel that at this time it will be a very attractive job for the future football coach.”
Pima will search for its fifth football head coach.
