Greg Jordan resigns as Blountstown head football coach and A.D.

BLOUNTSOWN, FL (WJHG/WECP) Count Blountstown among the area high schools now searching for a new head football coach.

Late Tuesday afternoon Newschannel 7 learned Greg Jordan was stepping down as the head football coach and Athletic Director at Blountstown High School.

The coach confirming to us Tuesday night he told his players the news Tuesday morning. And other than to tell me, via text, that it was a "rough day" he did not elaborate.

Given coach Jordan's sons have now graduated Blountstown, the timing seems right for him to move on. And given the Port St. Joe head coaching gig is open, it is a good assumption he may be moving south to become the next head coach of the Tiger Sharks!

Coach Jordan had a very successful 12 year run at Blountstown, a 102-42 record, with 11 state playoff appearances, and two trips to the 1A state championship game. Those years 2013 and 2017, the Tigers losing the title game on both occasions.

We should know by the end of the week if Jordan's departure from Blountstown means a move to Port St. Joe.

Along with Blountstown and St. Joe, the other area schools with head football coaching openings currently are at Graceville, Bozeman and North Bay Haven.
