Ben Ault has resigned as varsity football coach at Grayslake Central after two seasons at the helm.
Ault’s teams went 2-7 in 2012 and 4-5 last fall, losing to Woodstock the final week of the season to prevent the Rams from being playoff eligible. Central started last season 3-0.
Ault has been associated with Grayslake football for many years, and took over coaching when Nick Goshe stepped down after five seasons.
According to Grayslake Central atheltic director Steve Gertz, Ault will continue to teach and do some coaching at Central.
Grayslake Central is the fifth area high school to lose its football coach since the end of last season.
Grant, Warren, Zion-Benton and North Chicago also saw their coaches depart for various reasons.
North Chicago just hired Johnny Johnson as its new coach, but the other three schools are still looking at candidates.
