Pat O’Grady has stepped down as head football coach at Lindbergh after four seasons.
According to athletic director Keith Hennig, O’Grady wants to be able to watch his son play football this fall at Auburn, where he currently is a sophomore.
After three years as an assistant, O’Grady took over the Lindbergh program in 2009 and took the Eagles to the 3A state quarterfinals for the first time in school history. They finished 10-2 and O’Grady was named the Star Times Coach of the Year.
Lindbergh reached the first round of the 2A state playoffs in 2010 and ’11, then was eliminated in the preliminary round last fall.
O’Grady, who was the Seamount Coach of the Year in 2009 and 2012, leaves with a 30-12 record. He previously was head coach at Tyee for seven years, stepping down after the 2005 season.
