The announcement came on Tuesday. He spent five seasons leading the program.
“Please join me in sincerely thanking Coach Hayes for his immense dedication to the football program and the College – we are grateful for his many contributions, as both a coach and an alumnus,” Dr. Bryan F. Coker stated in the letter. “We wish him and his family the absolute best, as he looks ahead to the next chapter of his career.”
As the Scots head coach, Hayes went 31-19 at the school. He has been replaced on an interim basis by Scott Brumett.
Under Hayes, he guided the team to the USA Conference Championship in 2016 and 2018. In 2018, the team went to the NCAA Division III Tournament Playoffs.
“In 2019, I was blessed to become a father, and I want to be a present father in my daughter’s life,” Hayes said in a press release. “The daily demands as a head coach at the collegiate level require an amount of time that most people never understand. I didn’t understand it, either, until I was in that seat. The same can be said when you become a father.”
A national search has begun to find Hayes’ replacement. Brumett has experience coaching at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and Brevard College.
Brumett is in his seventh season at Maryville.
“Our athletics programs are a vital piece of the College’s future, as we seek to further raise our institutional profile and strategically increase enrollment in the coming years,” Coker stated. “I am confident this search will yield a competitive candidate pool, especially given the strong and storied tradition of MC’s football program, which dates from 1892.”
