Independence football coach Bill Geiler to leave program after 2012 season

CHARLOTTE - No matter how well Independence does this season, and no matter how well the Patriots may do next year – and the young squad has the talent to be a serious power in 2013 – head coach Bill Geiler will not be back to coach them.

“I’m going to look for a job in Charlotte private schools or South Carolina,” Geiler said. “I don’t want to be a head coach. I’m loving these kids, but I need my knee replaced and my body’s breaking. I told my wife, my AD and these kids. And we’re going out with a bang. These kids are great.”

Geiler has coached at Independence since 2000. He was an assistant until 2004, when he coached the team to a 15-0 record and state title. He was head coach at Porter Ridge in 2005, but returned as an Independence assistant under Tom Knotts from 2006-08.

After the 2009 season, Knotts left to take a job in South Carolina and Geiler left a volunteer assistant position at private Providence Day to come back.
