After 27 seasons as Dover High School’s varsity football coach, Ken Osbon  has announced that he won’t return as the program’s head coach next season.

Osbon, 57, has been with the Dover program for 37 years overall. After graduating from Plymouth State, he began coaching at Dover as the school’s freshman football coach in 1984. Osbon was elevated to head coach in 1992.

Osbon guided Dover to the Division II championship in 1996, when the Green Wave beat Exeter, 21-3, in the championship game. Dover hasn’t made the playoffs since 2011, when it lost to Bishop Guertin in the Division II title game.

Dover went 4-5 in Division I last season.

Osbon graduated from St. Thomas Aquinas High School and teaches physical education at Dover High School.
