Derry football coach Al Gaiardo has resigned for personal reasons after three seasons.

Gaiardo said his leaving the program has nothing to do with the players or administration.

“My dad was recently diagnosed with thyroid cancer and he's going to have surgery,” Gaiardo said. “I have to take care of family first. I'll be back someday on the sidelines.”

Derry was 0-10 this season and was 3-25 under Gaiardo.
