Northeast will begin its search for a new football coach this week because on Wednesday Donnell Bennett officially resigned.
Hurricanes athletic director Dawn Conrad-Booth confirmed Wednesday that Bennett had met with his players and told them he was stepping down as coach.
"We wish him well in his future endeavors," she said. "We'll interview applicants and we're going to hire the best person out there for Northeast High School."
Bennett, 40, who coached the Hurricanes for four seasons, said "it was time to move on."
"It was a family decision," Bennett said. "It is time to take a break. I still want to coach, but I'll wait and see what's out there."
