Riverdale football coach Nick Schroder recently resigned from the position. Schroder was 7-12 in two seasons with one playoff appearance.

"After this season, it was evident to me that my coaching style is not getting the job done here or getting players out for the team," Schroder said in a released statement. "It would be best for both myself and the football program to go in different directions. ... I wish everyone involved with Riverdale football the best of luck in the immediate future."

The Rams went 1-8 this fall as numbers issues plagued the program. Riverdale athletic director Scott Hemm said the school would like to narrow its search for a new football coach by early next month.
