Facing hip replacement surgery at the end of the school year, Marc Mesaros has resigned as Eastern Tech football coach after 14 years. Mesaros, who led the Mavericks to the Class 2A state championship in 2009, said he would not be ready to coach in the fall after having the hip replaced just a few months earlier. Mesaros, 48, leaves with a 120-44 record — 18th best among active coaches in Maryland last fall. Bill Brinegar, a former Maverick who played for Mesaros, will be the new coach. He's been on the staff for seven years. Brinegar inherits a team that finished 4-6 and did not make the playoffs after taking a big hit from graduation. In 2015, they were 10-0 during the regular season before falling in the regional playoff opener.
