Pope John Paul II is searching for a new head football coach once again.

Brett Bonnaffons has resigned his position after two seasons on the job. The Jaguars were 6-15 in the two seasons under Bonnaffons, losing in the opening round of the Division III playoffs to Dunham this past season.

Bonnaffons previously served as the head coach at Riverdale and was an assistant coach at Helen Cox, Riverdale, West Jefferson, Desire Street Academy, Redemptorist, Carroll and Catholic of New Iberia.

A Holy Cross graduate, Bonnaffons played collegiately at Nicholls State.

“I wanted to resign now to give the school enough time to hire someone else,”Bonnaffons said. “I am looking at other options. I plan on coaching again. It was a great experience with some of the best kids I’ve ever been around. We had 14 starters out for our last two games and our kids competed wonderfully. That doesn’t happen everywhere.”

Bonnaffons succeeded Daryl Thomas, who served as head coach of the Jaguars in 2014-15. Mark Jeanmard was the head coach from 2008-13 while Chris Lachney held the position from 2004-07. THomas is the current head coach at Bonnabel while Lachney just stepped down as the head coach at Riverside.

The search for a new coach begins immediately.
