Ocean Lakes Chris Scott resigns

Ocean Lakes

Ocean Lakes is in the market for a new head coach after Chris Scott surprised everyone by resigning to take the head coaching job at Bishop Sullivan in Virginia Beach.

Scott leaves Ocean Lakes after eight years and a 86-10 record.  The Dolphins won the school’s first state football title in 2014.  Last season, Ocean Lakes spent a quite a bit of time in various national polls, including High School Football America’s rankings.  The Dolphins climbed as high as #48 in our poll.

Scott told the Virginia-Pilot — “It’s a great opportunity,” Scott said. “It’s going to bring a lot of attention to Bishop Sullivan, and I’m excited about the opportunity to help build young men through character and faith. I couldn’t imagine this happening, then all of a sudden you have a dream job.”
