Tod Clark has resigned as Ysleta High's football coach.
Clark said he did not reach his goal -- to guide the Indians to the playoffs in five years -- so he thought it was time for a change. Clark went 22-38 in six seasons.
"My goal was playoffs in five years, which I said when I got the job," Clark said. "I gave myself six and it didn't happen. We didn't get the job done, it's time for a change."
The last two years, Ysleta missed the playoffs by one game, which was decided on the final day of the regular season.
"I thought we made a lot of strides in the right direction, but just couldn't come up with that big win," Clark added.
It's quite an admirable stance for Clark, especially given Ysleta's lack of success in recent years.
However, Clark will certainly land on his feet. He has accepted a position as a defensive assistant at District 1-5A Franklin.
"From my understanding, coach Clark thought this was a good career move at the right time," Ysleta Independent School District Athletic Director Mike Williams said.
Williams said there's no timetable to find a replacement. The job has yet to be advertised.
