Louisa football coach resigns for new job
Louisa High School football coach Mark Fischer resigned today after six seasons that galvanized the community and made the Lions one of the most respected programs in Group AA.
Lions athletic director Lee Downey said Fischer has accepted a coaching job in another state.
Downey said Fischer’s resignation will become official on Wednesday at the county’s School Board meeting.
“It’s going to be a very tough road for the next coach,” Downey said. “[Fischer] has built the program into what it is today. It’s a huge loss for Louisa.”
Fischer went 50-18 in six seasons. He guided the Lions to the Group AA, Division 4 state title game in 2006, where they lost 34-27 to Amherst. The Lions won the Jefferson District title and finished 11-1 this past season.
