Make that two Shore Conference teams who are now in the market for a head football coach.

David Schuman has stepped down as the head coach at Red Bank Regional, Shore Sports Network has learned. Red Bank Athletic Director Michael Stoia said Schuman submitted his letter of resignation on Tuesday night.

"We wish him well," said Stoia, who last month became Red Bank's AD. "We have started the search for RBR's new head football coach."

Schuman was Red Bank's head coach for just two seasons, compiling a 9-8 record. In his first season in 2019, the Bucs went 7-4 and qualified as the No. 5 seed for the South Jersey Group 3 playoffs. This past season, Red Bank went 2-4 in a COVID-shortened season.

Shuman was hired in April of 2019 to replace Nick Giglio, who coached the Bucs for nine seasons, including an 11-1 season in 2015 when RBR reached the Central Jersey Group 3 championship game. Schuman was an All-State running back at Saddle Brook High School and played linebacker at the University of Connecticut. Before Red Bank, he was the head coach at Saddle Brook, Palisades Park and Indian Hills.

Schuman is well-known and well-regarded in football circles as the owner of the National Underclassmen Combine, which identifies and scouts football across the United States. Schuman also owns and operates Inspired Athletes NFL Agency where he is an agent for pro football players.

Red Bank and Howell now currently have openings for their head football coach. Frank Edgelry stepped down as the Rebels' head coach last week after only one season.
