Oxbridge Academy (FL) elevates DC to head coach

Oxbridge Academy

Brendan Kent, Oxbridge Academy‘s defensive coordinator for the past two seasons, is the school’s new head coach.  Kent takes-over for Doug Socha, whose contract wasn’t renewed last week.

Socha’s was let go along with CEO Bob Parsons and Athletic Director Craig Sponsky, who had been on-leave for over a month while school officials looked charges of sexual harassment and what has been described as rampant turnover at the school.

After two years and a state championship at American Heritage (Delray), Socha took-over at Oxbridge, building the football program from scratch and leading the ThunderWolves to the Class 3A regional finals last season.

Oxbridge has a tough 2016 schedule that includes games against national powers DeMatha (Maryland) and Florida’s IMG Academy.
