After five seasons as the head coach of the Warrensburg-Latham football team, Scott Godfrey has accepted a job as football coach at Bloomington High School.
The move is pending school board approval, which will be at the next board meeting on Feb. 28.
Godfrey compiled a 22-27 record in five seasons, leading the Cardinals to back-to-back playoff appearances and a combined 13-9 record the last two seasons.
“There is a lot to look forward to," Godfrey said. "It's a bigger school, a great tradition and a phenomenal place to live and raise your kids.
"It was very hard. It was a lot of sleepless nights recently, a lot of talking with my wife. I leaned heavily on a lot of people to help me make this decision. The people at Warrensburg have been great to me."
Godfrey will replace Joe Walter, who led the Raiders, a Class 6A team, to a 4-5 record last season.
“I dont know a lot about the current team," Godfrey said of Bloomington. "Here soon I would like to get up to meet the payers and coaches. The history, the tradition, it's one of those big-time jobs. It's something I feel honored and privileged to be able to put my name up there with previous coaches and hall-of-famers."
In 2016, Godfrey led Warrensburg-Latham to its first quarterfinal appearance since 1987.
“All you can ask is to leave a program in a better place and I think we’ve done that," Godfrey said. "We had a winning record at the freshman, JV and varsity levels, and we return 16 starters on next year's team."
