HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) - Staunton High School is searching for a new head coach of the football program.

Staunton athletic director David Tibbs confirmed to WHSV via email Tuesday morning that Jake Phillips is stepping down as head coach of the football team. Phillips tells WHSV Tuesday night he has accepted the athletic director and football head coach position at Bath County High School.

Phillips took over the Storm prior to the 2019 season and guided the program for three campaigns, including the 2021 spring season which was played due to impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Staunton posted a 7-20 record during his time at the helm.
