(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Central High School's head football coach, Andy Ball will be stepping down.

The announcement was made Tuesday morning by Central's principal Dr. Deborah Stephens and the Athletic Director David Lau. 

Ball has been Central's coach since January 2017. He has accepted a job as the offensive coordinator for Missouri S&T in Rolla, Missouri. 

In a statement sent out by the school, Stephens said "Our goal at Central is to recruit and hire quality individuals like Andy. We are sad to see a quality head coach like him leave CHS."

Lau added "Coach Ball's passion for the game is contagious. We appreciate his hard work with our student athletes and service to our football program. It's hard to lose good people. I know he will be a great offensive coordinator at Missouri S&T."

Ball's resignation will be effective March 1, 2018 and the search for his replacement will begin immediately.

We enjoyed a very pleasant, dry, and sunny Saturday before the thunderstorms roll in Saturday night. Widespread thunderstorms will move into the area around 8pm Saturday night and will likely last until early Sunday morning. The rain will be moderate to heavy at times. Our biggest threats we are looking at are heavy rainfall, damaging winds, and hail. Wind gusts could reach up to 40-50 mph. A few scattered showers may linger through the morning on Sunday before clearing out. Temperatures will be cooler on Sunday with highs in the mid 50s. Temperatures will be on the cool side to start off next week with highs in the low 60s.
