Sam Thompson tabbed new St. Agnes football coach after Tom Flood steps down

Jan. 21—There will be a changing of the guard at the top of the St. Agnes football program during its recent run of success.

Tom Flood stepped down from the head coaching position following his second five-year stint with the Aggies. Under Flood's direction, the Aggies have reached four consecutive state title games.

Over his 10-year tenure, Flood finished 73-29 with St. Agnes. But his plan from the outset of his second stint running the team, Flood said in a release, was to take the job for five or six years and rebuild the program while mentoring a successor.

With the program successfully rebuilt — the Aggies featured a 65-play roster last fall — he is handing the reins to longtime assistant Sam Thompson.

"The program is in a great place right now and Sam is ready to take the helm," Flood said in a release.

Thompson has served under Flood for the past five seasons.

"I am very thankful and excited for this opportunity; it has been a privilege to be part of the rebuild of this program, and I am ready to keep the program moving forward," Thompson said in a release.
