Dacula's Roy resigns, heads to Central

Just two weeks after receiving word that its head girls basketball coach had stepped down, Dacula will have another coaching vacancy to fill after boys head coach B.J. Roy tendered his resignation on Friday.

Roy guided the Falcons to a 52-53 record, including a 15-14 mark and a trip to the Class AAAAA state tournament this past season, in four seasons after assuming the reins when Justin Grant went to Winder-Barrow to become athletic director.

Roy will head to Central Gwinnett, where he attended and graduated from, and join David Allen's staff as an assistant coach next season.

He cited time and other constraints of being a head coach as his reasons for stepping down at Dacula.

"It's time," Roy said. "I have four kids now, and I needed to make the mature decision. Coach Allen has got a good thing going (at Central), and it's where I graduated from. It should be fun.

"We played some powerhouse schools over the four years I was (at Dacula), and we had some great players who have gone on to play in college. And I had a blast (coaching there)."

Roy actually becomes the third head coach to resign at Dacula in the last two weeks, joining girls coach Travis Young and boys cross country and girls track and field goal Chad Harrison.

Assistant coach David Machovec has already been named to replace Harrison in the boys cross country and girls track and field programs.
