Steve Mitten has stepped down as the head football coach at West Chester Henderson, citing personal reasons.
Also, Conestoga has decided not to retain Marquis Weeks after two seasons at the helm, and Methacton's Paul Lepre has resigned after eight seasons.
"It was the right time for me and the right time for the program," Mitten said. "There were a lot of things that led to my decision. I wasn't pressured by [athletic director] Ken McCormick to resign or anything like that."
Before taking over at Henderson in 2012, Mitten was an assistant under ex-boss Joe Walsh for nearly a decade. He previously was an assistant at District 3 schools Red Lion and York Suburban.
A social studies teacher at Henderson, Mitten, 54, played tight end for the Warriors (class of 1982) and Millersville.
Henderson went 1-9 and 0-6 in the Ches-Mont League National Division this season.
"Even though we didn't win any championships, I thought we had some big playoff wins," Mitten said.
In 2014, Henderson topped perennial power North Penn, 40-13, in the opening round of the PIAA District 1 Class 4A playoffs.
Under Weeks, who starred as a running back for Conestoga in the late 1990s and went on to play at Virginia, the Pioneers went 1-9 and 1-8 in the Central League this season and 2-8 and 2-7 last year.
Lepre compiled a 35-52 record at Methacton. The Warriors went 0-10 and 0-5 in the Pioneer Athletic Conference Liberty Division this season.
