Waldorf College's Greg Youngblood has resigned as the head football coach.

Youngblood, who just completed his fifth season, announced on Thursday that he is resigning to pursue other opportunities.

"Waldorf College wishes Coach Youngblood the best in his future endeavors. We are tremendously appreciative of Coach Youngblood's hard work, dedication and exhibiting tremendous class, devotion and dignity during his time at Waldorf College. Intercollegiate athletics needs more people of outstanding character, such as Coach Youngblood. Without coaches of his caliber, the integrity of intercollegiate athletics will deteriorate," Director of Athletics, Michael Scarano, said in a written statement.

Before coming to Forest City, Youngblood was an assistant at Taylor University in Upland, Indiana and head coach and assistant coach at three different New Mexico high schools.

A nationwide search for Youngblood's replacement will begin immediately.

The Warriors finished the 2011 season at 2-9 overall and 0-7 in the conference.
