After more than a decade as a college football coach, Keita Malloy is going to try his hand at the high school level.
Orange County High School announced Wednesday night that it had hired Malloy to as the school's new head football coach. Malloy takes over for John Kayajanian, who went 101-84 in 18 seasons as head coach of the Hornets -- but won just two games in his final two seasons.
Malloy has been a college coach since 2000. He spent the past five years on Bobby Wilder's staff at Old Dominion before getting fired as secondary coach and assistant defensive coordinator following the 2012 season.
The Orange program's struggles coincide with the move to the Group AAA Commonwealth District before the 2011 season. The Hornets are winless in the district over the past two years.
