Cox not renewed as Seahawks baseball coach

Seahawks coach Kevin Cox is out as baseball coach.

In a low key announcement last week from Superintendent Steve Lanier’s office, the district administration announced Cox would not be returning as head coach for the 2023-24 school year. 

“I would like to thank Coach Cox for this time as our head baseball coach,” wrote Lanier. “Mr. Cox’s employment as a teacher at FCS will continue for the 2023-24 school year.”

Lanier said the school has begun actively searching for a new head baseball coach, and that the district was eyeing Cox for a role as a phys ed teacher in the elementary school grades. He would not comment on the reasons for the non-renewal of Cox’s position as coach, but stressed that it was not based on violations of FHSAA rules or any misconduct on the coach’s part.

Cox, who began as coach in the 2017-18 season, declined comment, as he was preparing for the team’s banquet Thursday night at the Carrabelle Christian Center.
