Randy Hilyer resigned as coach of the James Island football team on Tuesday, just four days after the Trojans finished the 2013 season with a 2-8 record.

Hilyer was the head coach for two years and posted a 7-14 record.

“I want to go in a different direction in my life,” Hilyer told reporters.

“I want to see where it takes me.”

Hilyer was promoted from defensive coordinator to head coach in 2011 after John Patterson resigned his position to take the athletic director’s job at Campbell High School in Litchfield, N.H.

Hilyer, who has been at James Island for more than 20 years, plans to remain at the school.
