FOREST CITY -- Chad Moore helped revitalize the Forest City football program.
It’s going to take someone new to continue the success.
Moore has accepted the athletic director and assistant principal position at Sergeant Bluff-Luton, just outside of Sioux City.
“It’s a step up professionally and a good fit for my family,” Moore said,
Moore guided Forest City to back-to-back playoff appearances in 2011 and 2012.
Moore came to Forest City a decade ago and led the team to its first district title in 2011, reinvigorating a football program that had seen its share of struggles.
This past season, the Indians snapped an 18-game losing streak vs. Clear Lake and finished the regular season 7-2 before bowing out in the opening round of the playoffs in overtime.
He will not coach at Sergeant Bluff-Luton.
The Indians reached new heights under Moore and he helped construct a state-of-the-art facility with field turf.
Moore has also been one of the driving forces in the North Iowa Conference’s expansion initiative.
“It’s a hard one,” Moore said. “My wife asked me how I would be not coaching. I’m still not sure on that one.”
