The coronavirus pandemic has not only thrown high school sports for a setback during the spring, it’s also caused a coaching change at Marysville High School.

MHS boys varsity soccer boss Terry Smith has stepped down after seven seasons on the job.

“The pandemic has changed my flexibility to be a full-time coach,” Smith wrote in an email to the Journal-Tribune this morning.

Smith works in the Franklin County court system.

“Unfortunately, I had to put in my resignation,” he said. “I have coached for 20 years and it was a very difficult decision to make.”

Smith said the improvement the Monarchs have made during his tenure made his decision even more difficult.

“It was a hard decision because of the direction of the program,” he said. “We have done some great historical things.”

The deadline for the submission of applications for the coaching position is Tuesday, May 26.
