ELMHURST – Steve Nye has resigned from his post as York football coach, as confirmed by athletic director Ron Murphy.

The Dukes were 3-15 on the varsity level in Nye's two years in charge.

York went 0-9 last season and 3-6 this fall under Nye. The Dukes have reason to expect better success in the future since the sophomore team went 7-2 and the freshman A team went 6-1-1.

Nye came to York from Brother Rice, where he coached from 1999 until 2011. At Brother Rice, Nye was 97-59, including three straight 10 win seasons from 2003-2005.

The Dukes' back-to-back losing seasons were the program's first since 2000-2001.
