MALVERN — Malvern head foot­ball coach Mike Scar­brough has re­signed from the po­si­tion af­ter the Leop­ards’ winless sea­son.

Scar­brough said it was “time for a change” in re­gards to his res­ig­na­tion as head foot­ball coach. He said he plans to re­main with the district, where he is also an as­sis­tant ad­min­is­tra­tor for Malvern El­e­men­tary School.

The Leop­ards went 0-10 over­all and 0-7 in the 4A-7 con­fer­ence this sea­son, fin­ish­ing the year with a 69-10

loss at Nash­ville (8-2, 5-2) and a 66-0 loss to Arkadel­phia (5-5, 5-2) at home at Claude Mann Sta­dium. They fin­ished 3-8 in 2017 and 4-6 in 2016.

Scar­brough has been with the district for 27 years. Malvern was 32-26 un­der Scar­brough be­fore the 2018 sea­son, in­clud­ing a 10-4 record in 2014.

Malvern’s ju­nior high team won the 4A-7 con­fer­ence ti­tle this sea­son. The Cubs won, 21-7, at Claude Mann Sta­dium against Nash­ville to close the reg­u­lar sea­son on Oct. 25.

They were 8-1 over­all and 6-1 in con­fer­ence play. The vic­tory helped Malvern avoid a five-way tie at the top of the con­fer­ence as Foun­tain Lake, Ash­down and Arkadel­phia each fin­ished 5-2. A win by Nash­ville would have put both the ju­nior Scrap­pers and the Cubs at 5-2.
