News Now: NFC Football Coaching Change

After two years as head coach, Casey Weldon will no longer be leading the Eagle coaching staff at North Florida Christian. Returning to NFC will be former head coach Tim Cokely who lead the team for ten years.

Under Weldon, the Eagles appeared in the class 1-A FHSAA state championship game for the past two seasons.

Three years ago, Cokely left the eagles to become the head coach of Colquitt County HS football in Georgia. He led NFC to five state titles in 10 years.

    IF Randy only new how Mike went from staff person to staff person putting pressure on each person to vote for Ted Liberty! Rest assured that he would have been looking for work. As it is now, Mike has a field named after him and a couple of titles under his belt.Mike is a survivor though and he been at NFC for a long time.

    I too am an alum of NFCS. I spent 11 wonderful years there. The best years of my life and I love Casey Weldon. I sent my 3 children there when Randy Ray "took over, thinking fresh, exciting blood would be good. I also took them out. Ray was disgusting with his attitude about education vs. money. He was a disappointment to those who put there life into that school and church. He let the girls at the Lighthouse Children's Home down and those who worked so hard to build it. "Power man" also made some "will of God" changes at the Rescue Mission here in Tallahassee. It's truley "his way or the highway". I'm embarrased to say I went to NFC. When I do say... I make it clear it was before him. God's will is to have a place for Christian families to send there children for an education. Rich or poor. One by one he's knocking the true leaders out and they are the ones who make him look good. He's not so popular today. I hope those still involved will stand together against him.

    As a former student of NFC, this is nothing new for them. I wish I could see half the skeletons they have hidden in their closet and 1/10 of the lawsuits that have settled out of court. Its amazing to me, how a school that is so well known and can preach the gospel as strongly as they do, is so secular caring only about money and pride. Casey Weldon is an amazing person on and off the field. I believe Coach Cokley has blackmail on someone.

    I'm don't like the way the NFC administration handled this, but I am glad Casey is leaving NFC. He has hurt people and not all the players adore him.

    I have had the prilivedge of listening for the last two years to children in my family tell about the wonderful experience that they have had with Coach Weldon, not only on the field but in the classroom and in the halls at NFC. Thank you Coach Weldon for being a positive role model both on and off the field. As I listened to your interview tonight I realized that you are truly a class act. You are to be commended for the role you have played in making the goals NFC has posted on their website for building character a reality. Best wishes for a bright future.

    Mr. Ray, I believe in God also, and in doing so the bible tells me that things should be done decent and in order. The bible also states that GOD is not an author of confusion. Mr. Ray, why is there some much confusion?
