Citing personal reasons, Kevin Pellegrini has stepped down as Malvern Prep's head football coach after five seasons.
According to a release issued by the school, Pellegrini spoke to his players Monday morning.
"I love representing Malvern football and I love coaching you guys," Pellegrini said to his players. "But at this point in my life, I am not able to give the time that this program deserves. I want you to be excited for this change, because Malvern will find a coach with talent, know-how, and the commitment that you need. I am an alumnus and will always be a part of this program. I look forward to watching you play."
Pellegrini compiled a 37-17 (.685 winning percentage) overall record and guided the Friars to three Inter-Academic League championships. He posted a 20-5 mark in league action.
