Royal Oak will have a new Football Coach This Fall.

Written Wednesday January 12th at 10:10 AM

The Ravens will have a new football coach this fall.

Royal Oak Coach Ray McMann has stepped down from the program according to a very accurate source.

McMann has coached the Ravens since 2013. He was 25-49 in his eight years coaching at Royal Oak with two postseason appearances.

McMann was a huge part of bringing football to Royal Oak especially in the youth levels despite the wins and losses. He has also been a positive influence with his players as well leading them to life lessons every day.

Royal Oak finished 2-7 last season. It will be very interesting who the Ravens find as their new coach. There is a lot of talent coming back with running back Michael Jenkins, quarterback Hudson Siddle, and linemen Ellie Finch and Jordan Wood. They have some talent coming back.

Whoever the new coach is will have a very tough job ahead of him. Program strength will be the key for the new coach. There are also a ton of questions on the varsity especially in the defensive secondary and depth will also be a huge question mark heading into 2022.

Stay tuned to OAA Now for the latest on this developing story.
