Keith Killea, who led Asbury Park's football team to a 7-4 season and an appearance in the NJSIAA Central Jersey Group I semifinals this past fall, said he has resigned as head coach for personal reasons.

Keith Killea has stepped down after one season as head coach at Asbury Park after leading the Blue Bishops to a 7-4 record and the Central Jersey Group I semifinals.

This past season was Killea's first and only season as the Blue Bishops' head coach. He had previously been an assistant under former coach Don Sofilkanich during Asbury Park's run of three straight Central Jersey Group I titles from 2007-09. He then served as an assistant at Neptune and Lakewood before coming back to Asbury Park last season.

His resignation leaves three head coach openings among Shore Conference teams. Asbury Park's longtime Thanksgiving rival, Neptune, is looking to replace Mark Ciccotelli, who took the head job at St. John Vianney, and Holmdel has a vacancy after former coach Frank Papalia stepped down.
