Waterloo East high school football coach Charlie Aldrich has resigned less than two months after the Trojans snapped a state record 60-game losing streak. East athletic director Mike Allen says Aldrich didn’t say why he was resigning and simply said he was retiring from coaching football.

Allen credits Aldrich for building a solid foundation, bringing it to “a position of success”, but Allen says Aldrich felt he’d gotten to a point where he felt he couldn’t give the thing he needed to give to the athletes and decided not to coach football in the future.
