Boys Junior Varsity Football, Boys Varsity Football · Coach Lewis to Leave Richmond


Varsity football coach Tony Lewis just informed the RHS football team that he will be leaving Richmond at the end of the school year.  Lewis will be moving on to lead a new program next year pending board approval.

Lewis won a State Championship in southern Indiana.  He then relocated to Florida before moving to Richmond to lead the Red Devils.  While discussing his impending departure, Coach Lewis said, “I appreciate all the support the entire administration and teaching staff have given me since I’ve come to Richmond. I want to thank Dr. Terrill for bringing me to Richmond and making the transition from my previous position in Florida a seamless one.”

Coach Lewis not only helped turn around the football program, but he made great strides at RHS in the weight room as well.   Lewis said, “I’ve really enjoyed working with all our students in the weight room and plan to continue to help them in my Conditioning class and during after school weights for the remainder of the year. Many of them have made great strides.”

Coach Lewis was well respected on the field, in the classroom, and in the community.  When discussing his time in RIchmond, Lewis said, “My wife and I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to be part of the Richmond community. I’m very thankful for the relationships I’ve developed with our football players, student population, staff, and community members.”

Richmond Athletics thanks Coach Lewis for his contributions to both our school and our community.

The search for the next head coach of the Red Devils begins immediately.
