Vineland football coach Ed Belfi has resigned after nine seasons guiding the Fighting Clan. Belfi told him players after Vineland’s 23-21 loss to Millville on Thanksgiving.
“I just felt it was time to step down because I didn’t think I was getting the work which I needed in the offseason,” Belfi said.
When Belfi took over in 2001, Vineland hadn’t enjoyed a winning season since going 6-2-1 in 1991.
In 2003 that streak was snapped with a 7-3 mark.
Belfi ended with a 30-60 record.
“I didn’t take the program where I wanted to,” he said. “But I thought we took a step.”
